Kansas City Veteran Jason Kander Reacts To Afghanistan Withdrawal
"My first reaction was not an intellectual one, it was an emotional one. It just sort of took my breath away."
After earning his law degree, but before being elected as Missouri Secretary of State, Jason Kander served as a military intelligence officer in Afghanistan. Since hearing the news of the troop withdrawal, Kander says he's felt relief, guilt and worry over a decision he understands to be right and for which he has advocated.
