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

Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 5-23-14-Fri. (222 days to go)

222 days to go until all US troops leave Afghanistan 31 December 2014. Keep them in your prayers.

In the meantime, on the home front, VA health care problems continue.

See the link at #1: former Kansas Republican Senator Bob Dole, a wounded WWII Army veteran, criticizes the Tea Party and wants to keep the current head of the VA in his position. All the while, as the headline reads, he calls the VA a “disaster”. What’s going on here? If it is a “disaster” why not call in new leadership?

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Former Sen. Bob Dole, a wounded WWII veteran, calls for the current head of the VA to keep his job pending an investigation. I don’t think veterans who need health care have time for this. If it is a “disaster” it seems it is time for the head of the VA to go. In addition, Dole criticizes US citizens who believe in the Tea Party concepts. I thought Republicans were supposed to have a “big tent” and be “inclusive”! What happened to those thoughts where Republicans accepted diversity into the GOP? Link:
