Ryan on Afghanistan: 'We Don’t Want to Lose the Gains We’ve Gotten'
Moderator Martha Raddatz teed up the topic of Afghanistan by pointing out both the cost of the war in dollars and lives as well the military milestones reached. “Why not leave now?” Raddatz asked.
Congressman Ryan responded that, “We don’t want to lose the gains we’ve gotten,” but also pointed out that he and Governor Romney agree with the Obama administration concerning the 2014 transition. To make sure that transition is successful, Ryan argued, it’s critical for our military commanders get what they need.
