Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) are continuing their recess trip to the Middle East with a stop Tuesday in Jerusalem. So far, they have met with Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and the Palestinian National Security Forces.

McCain — who has documented the trip via Twitter — said Tuesday morning they would also meet with Israeli leaders.

The trio began its trip Friday in Baghdad, meeting with Vice President Joe Biden, General Ray Odierno, Ambassador Chris Hill and a group of Iraqi leaders, including Prime Minister al-Maliki, former PM Ayad Allawi, Foreign Affairs Minister Zebari, Defense Minister al-Mifarji and Deputy PM al-Issawi.

On Saturday night, the senators traveled to Afghanistan.

On Sunday and Monday, they met with Gen. Petraeus and the Afghan military leadership in Kabul. They also inspected a police checkpoint in Kandahar, held a shura with local Kandahari officials, and participated in a re-enlistment ceremony for troops on July Fourth.
