State Senator Scott Brown (R-Wrentham) issued a statement tonight supporting President Barack Obama’s decision to send more troops to Afghanistan.
"I support President Obama’s decision to add more troops in Afghanistan. Winning the war on terror and defeating the Taliban is essential in preventing another 9/11-style attack. I am disappointed but not surprised to see how far out of step my Democratic opponents are with a President from their own party on a major issue of national security and foreign policy. Their opposition to President Obama shows just how far out of the mainstream they are and my fear is their opposition will jeopardize the safety of our troops and allow Afghanistan to again become a base to export terror around the region and the world."
Brown is the Republican hopeful for the US Senate seat vacated after the death of Edward Kennedy.
