38 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan and their last Thanksgiving there was to be tomorrow. But, without going to Congress, and without securing funding, President Obama last week extended their presence there! Will Congress go along and fund this extension? Links from around the GWOT:

39 days to go, if I have the count right, for US troops in Afghanistan. One thing for sure, with the date to withdraw of 12/31/14 approaching, this will be their last Thanksgiving there, then their last Christmas there.
