State of Massachusetts Archives: on Foreign Policy


Brian Herr: I believe in diplomacy; but keep terrorists out

On foreign affairs, Herr said he is not a "hawk" and that he believes in diplomacy. But he does not endorse a withdrawal timetable for Afghanistan, thinking it emboldens the United States' enemies and puts troops at risk. He said Afghanistan needs to be secured so the Taliban and terrorists don't take control again.

"I don't want this to go on forever," he said. "It can't go on forever. But I think it's important to get people to know that we can't back down."
