Oklahoma Representatives Encouraged With Troop Build Up
12/02/2009

Members of Oklahoma's congressional

delegation say they're encouraged that President Obama is sending

30,000 more troops to Afghanistan.

Obama told the nation Tuesday night that his new policy was

designed to bring the war "to a successful conclusion."

Rep. Mary Fallin, R-Okla., said she has concerns about whether

30,000 troops are enough to defeat the resurgent Taliban, and she

disagreed with Obama's announcement of a withdrawal date.

Rep. Frank Lucas, R-Okla., said even though Obama committed to

10,000 troops less than what commanding general, Stanley

McChrystal, requested, the decision shows the president listened to

his field commanders.

Rep. John Sullivan, R-Okla., said the decision was "overdue,"

but agreed it is "the right course of action."

About 850 Americans have died in the eight-year conflict.
