Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 2-26-14-Wed. (308 days to go)

With 308 days to go in Afghanistan for US troops, do the majority of American people know what the mission is until they are all gone from that country on 31 December 2014? The story at link #1 says Gen. Dempsey went to Afghanistan and told the troops to focus on their mission. But, it would be nice to tell the American people too, what the mission is as the troops complete retrograde operations to pack up equipment and close bases before 31 December 2014. The general might have explained the retrograde mission, just so the American people reading this could understand what is going on, and how dangerous it still is in that country, with Americans still taking casualties. Just today, I read that MARSOC Marine Master Sgt. Aaron Torian is being laid to rest at Arlington, after his death in Afghanistan earlier this month. RIP Master Sgt. Prayers should go out for his family. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Gen. Dempsey tells American troops to stay on mission. From what I have read in other stories, they are on mission, a retrograde operation mission to pack up and close bases by 31 Decemer 2014, in this still dangerous country, with Americans still taking casualties. Link:
