Washington, DC: Today, following the release of President’ Obama’s new national security plan for his last two years in office, Congressman Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, released the following statement: 

“This new ‘strategy’ is a regurgitation of the same failed policies that have engendered an international environment of weakness and made the United States and our allies around the world less safe. Instead of offering a plan to arm the Ukrainians so they can successfully combat ongoing Russian aggression, today the Obama Administration urged more restraint and inaction. The president must change course and recognize that Putin poses a threat not only to Ukraine, but to our NATO allies throughout Europe."
