Kentucky's senior U.S. Senator believes there is opportunity for bipartisan agreement concerning American troop levels in Afghanistan.

The Courier-Journal reports McConnell made the remarks after returning home from a congressional trip to Afghanistan and Israel.

The Kentucky Republican believes between 10,000-15,000 U.S. troops would be needed to continue training Afghan troops and combat terrorism after next year's American drawdown.
