Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 6-9-14-Mon. (205 days to go)
The days wind down for US troops in Afghanistan, about 205 days until 31 December 2014 when all are set to leave. (And take our money with us too, I hope, as the US taxpayer can no longer fund this Afghanistan venture.) Around the time the VA health care scandal hit the news a few weeks ago, and just before the Taliban commander swap, there was news of President Obama doing away with the 31 December 2014 date for US troops to leave and he was keeping them there two years longer! I hope the US Congress can put a stop to this, defunding the extra two years should do the trick. Let’s hope and pray, only 205 more days for US troops and US taxpayer funding in Afghanistan.
