Obama Dissembling on Afghanistan

However, since joining the Senate Foreign Relations panel, Obama has missed two of three Committee hearings on Afghanistan.

In their last debate before Tuesday's critical primaries in Ohio and Texas, Hillary Clinton criticized Obama for not holding any oversight hearings on Afghanistan on the European Affairs subcommittee, which Obama chairs.

Additionally: in his second trip overseas as a sitting senator, Obama was part of a congressional delegation that was scheduled to go to Afghanistan after visiting Iraq. Obama made the Iraq part of the trip but peeled off to visit Jordan and Israel instead of visiting Afghanistan, according to reports published at that time. Source - The Hill
