Afghanistan Today, the GWOT Hotspot (The Afghanistan Scandal?) 4-1-14-Tue. (274 days to go)

leave a comment »

Another month down, and 274 days to go for US troops in Afghanistan. Another 274 days for US taxpayer money to be wasted, so it will be good when that spigot is turned off when all our troops leave 31 December 2014. God bless American troops still in retrograde operations, packing equipment and closing bases and keep them in your prayers. For the first time in a long time, there were no American combat deaths in Afghanistan last month. Remember those veterans of our current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who are suffering, and their families, with TBI, PTSD, and other mental and physical illnesses. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) US taxpayer money wasted in Afghanistan. Where is the US Congress to get to the bottom of this, and possibly cut off the spigot before the 31 December 2014 deadline when US troops leave? Link:

319 days left for US troops in Afghanistan. As US troops complete retrograde operations, packing equipment and closing bases in this still dangerous country, USAID, as shown at link #1 cancelled a program to show good works by Americans in Afghanistan (or something like that). See link #1 for details. Links from around the GWOT:

1.) USAID cancels, or retracts request for “positive images” of Afghanistan:
