The United States has a moral obligation and a national security interest in fulfilling its promises to those who have risked their lives to support our mission, we recognize that a very important task is to ensure that we remain faithful to them, and that we do what’s necessary to ensure their protection, and if necessary, get them out of the country.
President Trump deserves major credit -- major credit -- for reducing Michael McCaul forces in Afghanistan to a sustainable level, scoring major victories against terrorists across the region and ensuring the Afghans themselves are at the front of the fight, that same successful approach should continue until the conditions for long term defeat of ISIS and al Qaeda have been achieved.
