Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin (D-MI) spoke at a Council on Foreign Relations event this morning to discuss U.S. military engagement. He made remarks and took questions from those in attendance- he focused on U.S. involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With the death of former Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, Levin also discussed the latest developments and the U.S. participation in NATO's campaign to assist and protect the anti-Gadhafi forces.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton pressed Pakistan's leaders Thursday to stop protecting militants. Levin talked about this matter and the current state of US-Pakistan relations.
Levin also touched on the Defense Authorization bill in Congress, which is making news because of debate over prohibiting alleged terrorists from being tried in the US court system.
