Afghanistan Today, your portal to the United States’ growing nightmare abroad.

Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 2-9-13-Sat.

One weekend after another, US troops remain in Afghanistan while Americans at home go about their business largely unaware a war is even being lost by American politicians who still have US troops stationed in Afghanistan. The US packs up from 12+ years of war, with a deadline of leaving on 31 December 2014. There is no longer talk of a US victory, not even from the politicians who sent US troops there. God bless America’s enlisted men and women as they furiously pack up, closing down bases by the dozens as they go.

In the meantime, the new Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, visits Afghanistan and is greeted with nearby bombs. Stories indicate he heard the noise of the explosions but was nowhere near when they went off.
