Set to testify are Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin; Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; and Marine Corps. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr., commander of U.S. Central Command. They testified Tuesday before the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The House hearing is titled "Ending the U.S. Military Mission in Afghanistan,” similar to that of Senate committee's, and as expected, focused in large part about missteps in the U.S. military's withdrawal from the country roughly 20 years after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
