Bill Clinton Supports Obama's Afghan Decision

Wednesday, 02 Dec 2009 10:06 PM


Former President Bill Clinton says he supports President Barack Obama's plan to sent an additional 30,000 troops to Afghanistan.

Clinton earned a standing ovation at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Manchester when he said Wednesday that he decided several weeks ago to support Obama's assessment and choices.

Clinton praised Obama for thoroughly considering whether to send more troops to Afghanistan, despite criticism he was moving too slowly.

Clinton said although many things have changed since he first became president, the Republicans' criticism of Democratic policies has remained unchanged.

He urged the audience to fight false statements about the current health care proposal before Congress and efforts to combat global warming by talking to friends and neighbors about Obama's policies.
