Nolan responds to President Trump's announcement on Afghanistan

Aug 22, 2017
Press Release

"The President’s decision to pursue this futile and seemingly endless 17-year war in Afghanistan is deeply disappointing and disturbing. If there is one Trump campaign promise the American people agree with, it’s putting a stop to endless wars of choice that are costing us so much precious American blood and treasury – and reinvesting those resources in America and our people. The simple fact is that this conflict in Afghanistan has become America’s longest war. It is bleeding us to death. This is a sad day, and the Chinese and the Russians are laughing at our costly and tragic folly."
