McCain, Warren Lead Senate Delegation to Afghanistan to Visit Troops Over Independence Day

Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) led a delegation of senators to the Middle East over the Fourth of July holiday, the Associated Press reports.

While in the region, the delegation took the opportunity to address the 16-year-long war that the U.S. has been fighting in Afghanistan. McCain, who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee, said:

“We need a new strategy, and that means to win. The strategy before was, ‘Don’t lose,’ and we lost some brave, young Americans.”

Warren agreed with McCain’s sentiment advocating for a change of policy in regard to Afghanistan.

Warren stated:

“The time for a strategy has come. We need a strategy in the United States that defines our role in Afghanistan, that defines our objective and explains how we are going to get from here to there.”

The AP reports that President Donald Trump’s administration is currently working on a new Afghan strategy as the presence of the Taliban and the Islamic State increases.

In addition to McCain and Warren, the Senate delegation also included Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), David Perdue (R-Ga.), and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.).

The delegation also stopped in Pakistan on its visit to the region, according to Fox News.
