Representative Steve Daines voted Thursday night to prevent more American troops from going to Iraq. Daines’s vote reaffirms his statement from earlier in the week that “only Iraqis can secure their future,” and his strong opposition to sending more American troops to Iraq.

“I strongly oppose sending more American troops to Iraq and believe only Iraqis can secure their future,” Daines said. “Iraqi leadership must address the concerns of their citizens from all sects and ethnicities, and Iraqi Security Forces must fight against al Qaeda-linked forces with urgency and resolve.”

Daines also voted for an amendment Thursday pronouncing that the 2002 Authorization to Use Military Force in Iraq does not authorize new military operations in that country and has asked that the President closely consult with Congress and seek necessary authorization as decisions regarding the United States’ role in Iraq are made.
