Lieberman, McCain & Lindsay Graham on staying the course in Afghanistan

Three members of the Senate Armed Services Committee say it’s in the country’s best security interests to keep U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

The three argue on the opinion page of The Washington Post:

“Significant military progress has been made in Afghanistan — progress that we have personally witnessed over repeated visits. Four years ago, southern Afghanistan was overrun by the Taliban, and our coalition lacked the resources and the strategy necessary to break their momentum. Today, that situation has been reversed, thanks to the president’s surge of forces, the leadership of talented military commanders, and the courage and perseverance of our troops.”
