Rep. Jim Moran has just left Afghanistan after leading a congressional delegation to the war-torn region, his spokesperson tells

The Alexandria Times reported earlier this week that Moran left for Afghanistan on Sunday. The trip was organized for members of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense but was not announced publicly.

The group has at least one additional, undisclosed stop to make before returning to the U.S. by Monday.

In July, Moran voted against supplemental funding for the war in Afghanistan.

“There exists no military solution to the conflict in Afghanistan,” he said at the time. “Instead of increasing our troop presence, we should be limiting our mission.”
