Susan Bysiewicz’s Statement on President Obama’s Decision to Leave Iraq
For Immediate Release
October 21, 2011
“Like many Americans I was very glad to learn of President Obama’s announcement today to remove all troops from Iraq by the year’s end. I have been calling for the immediate and safe withdrawal of all our troops from both Iraq and Afghanistan for over a year. We owe our soldiers and their families our deepest thanks and gratitude for the sacrifices they have made and the excellent job they have performed. President Obama should make the same decision in Afghanistan and bring all our troops in Afghanistan immediately and safely.”
