Rep. Mike Pence (IN) posted today on the Hill's Congress Blog:
Inside Afghanistan are some of the world’s most dangerous terrorists. The Taliban is taking over parts of the country and the more power they gain, the more the United States’ national security is at risk. This is why I circulated a letter to President Obama from members of the Foreign Policy Initiative applauding him on his efforts and leadership in Afghanistan recently.
Experts at the Foreign Policy Initiative believe we must move decisively when it comes to the Taliban in Afghanistan, using full resources and an effective counterinsurgency strategy. Taking chances with the enemy that killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11, and wishes to kill more, is not an option.
