    Well the entire matter is unclassified but my dad was J2 in the pentagon with a specialization in central asia. So basically I knew what the taliban was before sept 11th. He and some others recommended action but most actions people recommend don't take effect lol. There was just no poliitcal will and there are millions of implications and considerations to be made before a military action takes place.

    To point out glaring hypocrisy and bitter hyperpartsianship.

    Interesting the same people that were so tolerant of Bush leaving and taking his eye off the ball in Afghanistan are the same people that are most willing to attack president Obama from day one for nonsense.

    Don't you find that interesting Rev?

    Re: U.S. troops hope Afghanistan sacrifices not in vain

    The article was not even about any indecisiveness by the Obama administration.

    To me one point in the article was we should send more troops to afganistan to finish the mission so those troops who have died do not die in vain. I disagree, two wrongs will not make a right.

    Another point was we should do the opposite and pull out:
    "I used to believe in what we were doing here," the soldier said. "I'm not too sure anymore. It's just we don't know what the endgame is. We've been getting hit hard out here. What are we here to win? I have to believe that what Gen. [Stanley M.] McChrystal is doing is going to work.But who knows how long that will last before someone else decides to change the game plan again? I mean, do the people in Washington even remember we're here?"
    This is not indecisiveness to implement a strategy, this is showing troops don't believe any strategy will work. We should leave.
