The French government has formally requested U.S. military assistance to combat al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in Mali, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the American Forces Press Service on Thursday.
Twenty-two Republican senators have cited recent comment by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff "that appear to call into question whether military service members should vote."
