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

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.”

    Do you think he had the nerve to look the troops on the eye?

    It’s nice to know I have his support as I get ready to ship over there. I guess my buddies are dying for no reason if the military isn’t “a solution”.

    Sign. I wish some democratic office holder in arlington had the nerve to challenge his/her party and run against Moran in a democratic primary. It is time for Moran to go.

    i don’t see anything wrong with moran’s statements and i don’t see how bringing our troops home is unsupportive.

      The only fighting Moran supports involves beating his wife and young black children who touched his ride.
