Graham Wants Permanent Bases in Afghanistan

A leading Republican lawmaker “on U.S. military policy says he wants American officials to consider establishing permanent military bases in Afghanistan,” the AP reports.

Sen. Lindsay Graham of South Carolina says that having a few U.S. air bases in Afghanistan would be a benefit to the region and would give Afghan security forces an edge against the Taliban.

Graham tells NBC television’s “Meet the Press” that he wants to see the U.S. have “an enduring relationship” with Afghanistan to ensure that it never falls back into the hands of terrorists.
