Now even RepublicanCongressman, Bill Young. WoW! Never would have expected this.
He is on the House Appropriations Committee Defense Subcommittee.
IMO, Young still has a ways to go, since would keep combat force in Afghanistan—the Graveyard of Empires. Still, it's a step in the right direction.
Young this week reversed his position on Afghanistan, a change of heart he says came in part because of Sitton's letter. In a position opposite that held by most leaders of his party, the influential Republican is now calling for U.S. troops to leave the country ahead of the 2014 deadline called for by President Barack Obama.
Or maybe he just wants the manpower to do Iran next? Or maybe the polls are finally being heard along with the possibility of Rs losing the Presidential race. Or knows the Rs need the Paul supporters? Who knows?
