Carol Shea-Porter's Afghanistan Flip-Flop

Carol Shea-Porter has, for years, advocated withdrawing troops from Iraq and redeploying them to Afghanistan. Now the time has come to do just that and Shea-Porter announced that she is "inclined" to drop her long held support for a troop surge in Afghanistan.

“During her 2006 and 2008 campaigns Congresswoman Shea-Porter repeatedly stated that we must redeploy troops to Afghanistan to win the war and destroy the terrorists that threaten our national security. Now she says that she’s ‘inclined’ to oppose the very same war strategy that she once championed,” said NHGOP Communications Director Ryan Williams. “This is just another indication that in her three years in Congress, Carol Shea-Porter has evolved into a double-talking, finger-in-the-wind, Washington politician.”
