Walsh Urges President To Use Caution Dealing With Iraq

Posted: Updated:

Senator John Walsh says it's time for Iraq to secure and defend its own nation.

Speaking from the U.S. Senate floor on Wednesday, Walsh, an Iraq war veteran, reminded the President and Congress of the costs of war. Recounting his own time serving in Iraq, he urged the President to use extreme caution.

Walsh also asked President Obama to approve the Keystone XL Pipeline, so America can depend less on the Middle East for oil.

"Because I know that foreign policy failures made in Washington fall disproportionately on the backs of young men and women from small towns across Montana and across America," Walsh said.

During his time in iraq from 2004 to 2005, Walsh commanded the largest deployment of Montana soldiers since World War II.
