Cicilline Statement on Presidential Address

Monday, August 21, 2017

PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (D-RI) issued the following statement after tonight's Presidential address:

"After 16 years, we have spent more than $800 billion in Afghanistan. More than 2,200 American heroes have been killed in this conflict."

"If the President has a new strategy for winning this war and advancing our national security interests, he did not provide it tonight. History has shown that simply throwing money at this war is not a formula for success."
