I just hosted a media conference call for the Afghanistan Study Group with Republican California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA-46) on his views about America’s course in Afghanistan.
I will be posting soon the audio clip from the short and fascinating call.
One of the zingers, however, is when Dana Rohrabacher said that he had to rush down to the floor of the House to vote “yes” on Representative Dennis Kucinich‘s (D-OH-10) bill calling for the administration to move troops out of Afghanistan by the end of the year.
Rohrabacher acknowledged that he is on the other side of Kucinich on most issues about 98% of the time. My instinct tells me it’s more like 99.9% of the time, but it’s clear that more and more Republicans are expressing reservations and concerns about the course of the Afghanistan War.
Haley Barbour put his marker on the table earlier this week.
