Rep. Loretta Sanchez (CA-47), senior member of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement in response to the partnership agreement today signed by President Obama and Afghan President Hamid Karzai to mark the beginning of the end of the war in Afghanistan.
“Afghan President Hamid Karzai has recently asserted that Afghanistan would side with Pakistan in a hypothetical war against the United States,” said Sanchez. “These comments are especially frustrating given the United States continues to invest endless amount of resources – including our young men and women – for the people of Afghanistan.”
I just about fell out of my chair on Friday when I read that Field Marshal (Mayor Pro Tem) Jim Righeimer was going on a “trade mission” to the City of Ordos, in Inner Mongolia, China. According to the press release Righeimer, City Public Affairs Manager Dan Joyce, and Susan O’Brien Moore,Vice President of the Executive Board of the Convention and Visitors Bureau (VCB).
