Chair Jane Kleeb’s statement on President Trump’s speech on adding more troops into war in Afghanistan

“Nation building is off the table. We have no end date to the war. The State Department is understaffed. This is Trump’s #winning plan? Our nation needed to hear a plan. We needed to hear how democracy is built in a country that has been at war for almost two decades. It is clear that Nebraska’s two Senators–Fischer and Sasse–who both serve on the Armed Services Committee, must provide the much needed checks and balance and get answers to exactly how long and at what cost our troops will stay in Afghanistan.”
