Yesterday was a busy day on Capitol Hill for those interested in various facets of U.S. national security policy with several hearings relevant to Just Security readers.  Today looks to be no different as the the House Committee on Foreign Affairs holding a hearing on “Al-Qaeda’s Resurgence in Iraq: A Threat to U.S. Interests.”  Testifying before the full committee is Brett McGurk, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Iraq and Iran of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs for the U.S. Department of State (full text of his opening statement).
