Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Vista), a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee and House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, spent the weekend visiting with Marines from Camp Pendleton, California and soldiers stationed in Afghanistan as part of a continuing Congressional Delegation mission (CODEL) to the Middle East.

Congressman Issa was briefed on military operations in the area, the support needed to ensure success in the fight against radical terrorist organizations and our continuing efforts to train and support progress towards an independent Afghanistan.

His agenda included meetings with key government and military leaders in the region including U.S. Army General John Nicholson -- commander of US Forces Afghanistan and NATO's Resolute Support Mission in the area -- as well as U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Hugo Llorens, Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction John Sopko, and U.S. Air Force Brigadier General Phillip Stewart among others.

Upon departing for his next stop on the trip, Congressman Issa released the following statement:

“I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunity to sit down and share a meal with the brave men and women who shoulder the daily burden of preserving liberty and keeping our nation and its allies safe. It’s absolutely crucial to hear from our military leaders and troops on the ground about the challenges they face, the lessons they’ve learned, and the support they still need to be successful in deterring the real threats that ISIS, the Taliban, and other extremist groups pose not only to our allies but to overall stability in the region. I will keep working to ensure our troops have the tools they need to succeed. I give my heartfelt appreciation to all those serving and to those I had the chance to meet with here -- including many constituents from Camp Pendleton -- for their service and sacrifice to our nation."
