Kasich: ‘We Need To Get Out of Afghanistan,’ Give Afghans Aircraft They Need, Then ‘Get Out of There’

Republican presidential candidate Ohio Governor John Kasich said he believes “we need to get out of Afghanistan” during a town hall on MSNBC on Thursday.

Kasich stated, “I now believe we need to get out of Afghanistan. I — if I were president, I wouldn’t be announcing the timeline, but I would give the aircraft that the Afghans need, and I’d get out of there. And then, if we saw, you know, people acting up in there, we use special forces to take them out.”
