When asked about the Obama administration’s apologies to Afghanistan for burning Korans, Neugebauer said that there was no reason for them to apologize, and that the Taliban are still our enemy. However, he has mixed feelings about whether or not U.S. troops should remain in Afghanistan.

“I think we’ve accomplished a lot of things in that part of the world…what I’m really wondering is, long term, can the Afghanstian government sustain what we’ve been able to give them up to this point?”

Neugebauer said that the strategy in Afghanistan is till to help the country stand up a free government and an army, but not they’re dealing with the fallout from the changes being made. Neugebauer also spoke about the rise in gas prices, the U.S dependency on foreign oil, and answered a listener’s call concerning Israel’s right to attack nuclear sits in Iran.

You can listen to Congressman Randy Neugebauer on Monday at 7:35 during Lubbock’s First News.
