Rep. Swalwell on Afghanistan Bombing: ‘We Can’t Just Bomb Our Way to National Security’

‘Right now this president wants to dramatically cut foreign aid and we need foreign aid and we need friends in the region if we’re going to ever see progress over there’

EXCERPT:

SWALWELL: "Well, I too want to know if the President authorized this because he doesn't have to authorize everything the military does, but he certainly should be involved when we escalate to the weapons used. I'm all for going after ISIS and I want to find out more as to whether any civilians were killed, also whether the Afghans were involved. We can't just bomb our way to national security. Right now this President wants to dramatically cut foreign aid and we need foreign aid and we need friends in the region if we're going to ever see progress over there."
