Bennet Statement on Trump Afghanistan Speech

Washington, DC- Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet today issued the following statement in response to President Trump's address to the nation about the U.S. presence in Afghanistan:

"President Trump offered only vague details on an Afghanistan strategy and failed to answer critical questions. To commit more resources to our longest war, we deserve to know: What does winning mean and what are the conditions for withdrawal?; How does the administration plan to build support from allies and partners?; How will the administration carry out this strategy without funding the State Department?; and how will this make our country more secure?

"The administration should provide these answers, and Congress must have a vigorous debate before we invest more blood and treasure."
