Statement on Senate Confirmation of General David D. McKiernan as Commander of United States Armed Forces in Afghanistan,
October 2, 2008

Today the Senate confirmed General David D. McKiernan as commander of U.S. forces, Afghanistan. This newly created position and realignment of the command structure provides General McKiernan authority over nearly all U.S. forces in Afghanistan, ensuring greater coordination in operational planning and execution. General McKiernan will continue to serve as commander of the International Security Assistance Force.

General McKiernan’s new responsibilities will strengthen both U.S. and NATO efforts in Afghanistan. I congratulate General McKiernan on his confirmation and commend the Senate for its quick action on this important nomination.
