Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 6/19/14-Th. (195 days to go)
195 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. Let’s hope and pray the US Congress steps up and does not give in to the desire of President Obama to stay two more years until 2016! Staying until 12/31/14 is long enough!
Links from around the GWOT:
1.) I did not see the hearing yesterday, but this story states that a soldier who served with Bowe Bergdahl said Bergdahl did not support the COIN theory (nation building, tea drinking missions) which was so popular with successive US generals leading the mission: McKiernan, McChrystal, and Petraeus, among others. This soldier states that Bergdahl wanted to fight and kill the Taliban. That sounds like a good plan if you ask me: stop the nation building, defeat the enemy, win the war and leave Afghanistan! Link:
