Sen. Fischer returns from 4th of July trip to Afghanistan
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer says she learned a lot during her trip to the Middle East, especially when she got a chance to talk with the troops. Fischer, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and five other U.S. Senators received secure briefings while in Afghanistan. Fischer says American allies in Turkey and Jordan want to know where the United States stands on Syria and Egypt, and want assurances that the U.S. will not abandon the region.
