Congressman Turner, Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, released the following statement after President Obama’s final State of the Union.


“After asking the President to come to the table with a comprehensive strategy to defeat the many threats we face as a nation, the President continues to come up short. During President Obama’s time in office, relationships with our many allies have deteriorated along with our standing as a global leader.  Whether it’s addressing the threats posed by ISIS, North Korea, or Iran, the United States continues to lead from behind.”

Congressman Turner recently sent a letter to the President asking him to outline a strategy to stop North Korean aggression and the further proliferation of nuclear weapons following claims by the government of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea that it has successfully detonated a thermonuclear device.
