This is the June 20, 2018 hearing titled "U.S. Policy Toward Afghanistan" held before the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the opening statement of Edward Royce: "Afghanistan has been called 'America's longest war.' Thousands of Americans have lost their lives. We have spent hundreds of billions of dollars. This investment aims to achieve a stable Afghanistan that does not harbor international terrorists. Should the Afghan Government fail, the vacuum surely would be filled. [...] This conflict does not need a sustainable political resolution of some sort that is going to fall apart. What it needs is a well-thought through sustainable situation that will hold for the people of Afghanistan and that leads to a credible competent Afghan Government." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Alice G. Wells, Eliot L. Engel, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Lois Frankel, Joaquin Castro, and Thomas R. Suozzi.
