Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 6-8-14-Sun. (206 days to go)

206 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. I know there was talk from President Obama a few weeks ago to keep US troops in Afghanistan two years past the date to leave of 31 Deember 2014. I hope Congress can stop this two year extension and stop any funding for a two year extension.

Links from around the GWOT:

1.) Assassination attempt on Afghan presidential candidate Abdulah Abdulah. Link:

2.) Could the assassination attempt (see link #1) be linked to this? This story says Taliban commanders who did not disrupt the April election enough were hanged! Link:
