McCain missed every Armed Services Committee hearing In the last two years that discussed Afghanistan

A review of the Senate Armed Services Committee hearings as listed on the committee Web site for the past two years reveals that McCain’s committee has held six hearings that included the word “Afghanistan” in the title or Central Command — which overseas U.S. troops in Afghanistan. McCain missed them all.
For an old man so apt at playing president, John McCain badly misjudged the important demands of the office he seeks. Visits with world leaders and speeches to cheering Colombians and Canadians shouldn't be a substitute for comforting injured American heroes. It seems to me that McCain would rather lose a war in order to win a political campaign.
