McCollum calls for a focus on Afghanistan
Minneapolis — U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn., wants America to shift its focus from Iraq to Afghanistan.
Speaking at the University of Minnesota's Humphrey Institute, McCollum said she doesn't think President Bush's plans for Iraq can succeed, but with more resources, Afghanistan is "doable."
She is recently back from a congressional visit to Afghanistan, Pakistan and Jordan.
