Afghanistan Today, a GWOT Hotspot (the Afghanistan Scandal?) 11/26/14 Wed. (38 days to go)

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:

45 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan, and evidence of the Afghanistan scandal grows with each new report by an inspector general, it appears. See link #1 for details about waste of US taxpayer money in Afghanistan, and how it seems nobody was held accountable. There needs to be a post war hearing of the top levels of military leadership for the many years in Afghanistan up until the US leaves on Dec. 31, 2014. There needs to be accountability at the top military level and at the political level, as the politicians sent them there and funded this scandal. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) There needs to be top level hearings of top military officers through the years in Afghanistan and accountability for this scandal, and for the politicians who sent them there and funded this scandal. In addition to wasting US taxpayer money, there was a huge cost of US lives, and for those injured, lifetime of pain, suffering, PTSD, TBI, and fallout for years in payments in disability, etc.

97 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan and let’s hope it’s not extended one more day, so US troops can come home and the US taxpayer can stop funding this country.
