Bring 'em home
I firmly believe that President Obama should not commit any more troops to Afghanistan but start removing U.S. troops entirely and bring them home.
There is nothing to be gained by staying and supporting a corrupt government and certainly Osama bin Laden is no longer there. If we wait long enough, he will eventually surface and the CIA can take him and hand him over for justice to be served for his planning, financing and committing the 9/11 atrocity against America.
President Bush plunged us into Afghanistan and rightfully so, and he made great strides with the cleansing of the Taliban who harbored al Qaeda and freeing the people. But [he] lost his way by attacking Iraq and forsaking the Afghanistan campaign which allowed the culprits to reassemble and rebound. There's no use in the U.S. making the same mistakes over and over.
Now it's time to leave them to govern themselves with or without a corrupt government and be assured that justice for bin Laden will come some day.
It also is now time to concentrate on keeping our intelligence alert and accurate so as to keep the U.S. protected from more terrorism and to focus all our energy on our domestic problems.
I no longer support the war in Afghanistan as I did when we had clear purpose.
