Congressman: Generals may quit if Obama stays pat in Afghanistan

By Jordan Fabian – 10/01/09 09:34 AM ET

A conservative congressman said on Thursday that top generals may resign or retire early if President Barack Obama does not make a significant changes to the military’s Afghan strategy.

“Sure, I think that’s a legitimate concern,” Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told Washington Times Radio this morning. “If the president chooses [not to readjust the strategy] but stay there, I think you’ll see that kind of a thing happen, then I think you’ll see those kinds of resignations.”

Ryan expressed worry that the current strategy in Afghanistan is not working. Administration officials have said they are conducting a strategic review of the conflict there. He called for the White House to enact changes quickly.
