United States Central Command and United States Africa Command, Hearing Before the Committee on Armed Services, United States Senate, One Hundred Fifteenth Congress, First Session, March 9, 2017   [open pdf - 1MB]

This testimony compilation made by the HSDL staff is from the March 9, 2017 hearing, "United States Central Command and United States Africa Command," before the United States Senate Committee on Armed Services. The purpose of this hearing was to discuss "the posture of U.S. Central Command and Africa Command. […] More than a decade-and-a-half since the September 11th terrorist attacks, our nation is still at war with terrorists that seek to attack our homeland, our interests, our allies, and our partners. […] Our military has gradually eroded ISIS's territorial control and removed key personnel from the battlefield. […] But much to the frustration of the American people, this hard-won tactical progress has not led to enduring strategic gains." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Joseph L. Votel and Thomas D. Waldhauser.
