Maine senator gaining in call for Afghan probe
Question of the Day
PERU, Maine (AP) — Sen. Olympia J. Snowe, Maine Republican, says she’s gaining support in her call for a federal review of security forces in Afghanistan after a soldier from Maine and five others soldiers were killed by an Afghan recruit during training exercises.
Twenty-four-year-old Buddy McLain of Peru and the other soldiers from the Army’s 101st Airborne Division were killed in the Nov. 29 incident.
Mrs. Snowe says she wants to ensure that Afghan security forces are not a threat to U.S. personnel.
She says her effort is backed by Army officials and her colleague Sen. Carl Levin, Michigan Democrat.
Mrs. Snowe tells the Sun Journal newspaper that answers are needed for the safety of troops and for the long-term prospects for peace and stability.
