Walsh: Montanans deserve transparency in Iraq policy

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

(HELENA, MT) - U.S. Senator John Walsh today issued the following statement critical of the President’s decision to again increase the number of troops in Iraq:

“A continued escalation of U.S. commitment in Iraq is troubling. The President has promised to prevent ‘mission creep.’ But how many Americans will we deploy? How much money will we spend? How long until we demand the Iraqi people stand up and defend their own government? Montanans deserve transparency and answers."
