Burr 'optimistic' with progress in Afghanistan

U.S. Senator Richard Burr, R-N.C., said he's encouraged by progress being made in Afghanistan following a four-day trip to the Middle East. As members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, Burr and Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga, returned this morning from Afghanistan where they met with senior U.S. and Afghan officials to review security measures.

“I continue to be optimistic about the progress made by American forces in Afghanistan, and am glad to see Afghans taking more control of their own security,” Burr said.
