On Lubbock’s First News on KFYO, Rep. Randy Neugebauer said he was concerned that President Obama’s decision to withdraw all U.S. troops from Iraq by the end of the year might not be in the best interests of Iraq. Neugebauer also believes that politics might have played a role in the decision.

“He can’t get support even from his own party on his jobs program and he is struggling.  He’s looking for ways obviously to get his numbers back up.”

Neugebauer said it would be unfortunate if military decisions were made for political reasons.
