2010 Statement of Policy, Airpower in Afghanistan

AFA Members, Congressional Staffers, Civic Leaders, DOCA Members, In Sept AFA decided on its Statement of Policy for 2010. Its focus is on a Balanced Air Force - balanced in terms of capabilities today … and tomorrow. The long version can be found at: http://www.afa.org/AboutUs/SOP2010.pdf

For those of you who want the condensed version, you can find it at: http://www.afa.org/AboutUs/TopIssues_2010.pdf

Secondly, two weeks ago there was a piece in a South Carolina newspaper which highlights just one aspect of Airpower's contributions to the fight in Afghanistan - that of airlift's vital role. You can find the story at: http://www.thestate.com/local/story/993752.html

Finally, with the national debate raging on what to do in Afghanistan, two Congressional leaders - Congressman Ike Skelton and Senator Joe Lieberman offered their advice in a piece entitled: "Don't Settle for Stalemate in Afghanistan." The piece appeared in the Washington Post a couple weeks ago and a link to it can be found on our website at: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/10/16/AR2009101602650.html

For your consideration,
