Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 11/24/13 Sun.
As American troops continue retrograde operations in Afghanistan, let’s pray this Sunday that they are able to leave and bring our money home with them no later than 31 December 2014, and earlier if they finish packing up and closing down the bases beforehand. Meanwhile, Bati Kot, Afghanistan remains a terrorist haven. US Marines were falsely accused of killing civilians on 4 March 2007, the first ever MARSOC, Special Ops Marines deployed. All Marines were exonerated at a Marine Court of Inquiry in 2008. Bati Kot remains a dangerous place near the Torkham Gate on the Pakistan border. The latest “incident at Bati Kot”, which is the title by a Marine Mom (Google it), happened recently, and US Special Ops are accused of murdering Afghan civilians again! See the link at #1 and contact your elected officials concerning keeping US troops in Afghanistan past 12/31/2014. The US Congress should have a vote and represent the American people, not just Afghan elders and the US State Dept. Link:
