Last week, President Barack Obama provided an update on our nation's involvement in Iraq. Over the past several days, the American people have watched as our military and the Administration continue to monitor the area closely, recently relocating some staff out of the U.S. Embassy in Iraq's capital.
It is clear today as it has been for years: United States cannot afford to police the world and go it alone in what continues to be an area requiring global and regional support. As the current situation develops, it is crucial that you have an opportunity to share your thoughts on our involvement going forward.
That is why I will be holding a community forum on the situation in Iraq this Sunday from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. at the West Hartford Town Hall:
Forum on Iraq
West Hartford Town Hall
Sunday, June 22nd, 5PM
50 South Main Street
West Hartford, CT 06107
Please RSVP online or over the phone at 860-278-8888. I look forward to hearing your comments, questions and concerns this Sunday.
