U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin reacts to President's Afghanistan plan

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WKOW) -- U.S Rep Tammy Baldwin released the following statement in response to President Barack Obama's Afghanistan plan.

"In 2001, I voted to authorize the use of force to bring to justice those responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

I believe our current actions in Afghanistan and President Obama's proposal for moving forward bear little resemblance to that original, narrowly-focused mission. 

I cannot endorse a military surge in Afghanistan and Pakistan.  It's time for our troops to come home."

--Statement of Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin
