Murphy to hold Litchfield meeting on trip to Afghanistan

On WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 18 AT 6PM, Congressman Chris Murphy (CT-5) will host a town hall meeting at the Litchfield Community Center to share his experiences from his recent trip to Afghanistan and Pakistan, and to lead a conversation about our national foreign policy under the Obama Administration.

Murphy sits on the Oversight and Government Reform Committee and its National Security and Foreign Affairs Subcommittee. The purpose of the trip was to oversee our military operations in Afghanistan, in particular the increasing corruption in the Karzai government in Afghanistan and the recent rash of civilian casualties from U.S. bombings. In Pakistan, Murphy and the other members of the delegation delivered a strong message to President Asif Ali Zardari about Congress’ desire for internal reforms.
