Top commander in Afghanistan says mission on track
“What’s more, in the absence of sustained, public campaign to support the mission in Afghanistan — from the White House on down — many have begun to question what we’re fighting for,” Mr. McKeon said in acknowledging the divisions in Congress and the nation.
Rep. Adam Smith, Washington Democrat, is among those in Congress pressing for a faster withdrawal.
“The solution to this dilemma, that over time our large scale presence will have diminishing returns, is simple — we should accelerate the plans we have already made. The NATO Lisbon Conference of 2010 laid out a realistic plan for transition. Our challenge now is to look for ways to implement it as fast as we responsibly can,” said Mr. Smith, the top Democrat on the committee.
Miss Rice was interviewed on CBS’ “This Morning.”
