Representative Carlos Curbelo (FL-26) released the following statement regarding the Administration’s new strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan as outlined in the President’s remarks last night: 

When I visited our heroes serving in Afghanistan last year, I met many men and women who are sacrificing time with their families and risking their lives to fight terrorism, advance our country’s interests, and stabilize the region. I support the President’s commitment to a strategy in Afghanistan based on conditions on the ground and the advice of military officials instead of artificial deadlines and political considerations. Our troops deserve to know we will provide them the resources they need to be successful, which means being ready for any situation they face, defeating the enemy and then returning home. We cannot allow their sacrifices, and those of all who have served in this conflict, to be in vain. 

“More broadly, this policy announcement recognizes that while our country cannot serve as the international police, we do accept our responsibility as the last remaining super power‎ to fight terrorism and promote peace. A world in which America leads is safer and more prosperous for all.”
