State of Missouri Archives: on War & Peace


Robin Carnahan: No date for Afghan withdrawal, but no open-ended commitment

The two sides agreed on at least one thing: there should not at this time be a firm deadline for the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan.

"The president made a huge mistake when he announced a date for withdrawal," Blunt said. "The world is a dangerous place."

Carnahan said that while there shouldn't be a date for withdrawal, there also should not be an open-ended commitment for troops.
