U.S. Congressman Tim Johnson, who will soon be representing parts of the Riverbend due to the redistricting, says he supports President Obama's plan to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. But, the Urbana Republican says this is something that should have been done a long time ago.

Johnson comments

With a little less than two months before American forces must leave Iraq, the U.S. military still has 33,000 service members, 12 bases and 600,000 pieces of equipment in the country. 6,200 American servicemembers have died in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
