Rep. Wolf continues push for study group on Afghanistan and Pakistan

Wolf wants the independent panel to study U.S. strategy in Afghanistan and Pakistan in a similar model to the Iraq Study Group, which Wolf had first proposed.

Wolf added an amendment to the House defense appropriations bill that provided $1 million for the study group. He said in the letter Tuesday that Panetta should quickly set up the panel now that the money is there for it.

Before he was Defense secretary, Panetta served on the Iraq Study Group, which released its report in 2006.
