By the way....Will we ever be able to leave Afghanistan?
You remember Afghanistan -- the country we invaded that actually did have a connection to Al Qaeda and 9/11? Well, we still have Troops there and I suppose it is time to ask whether there is a plan to ever bring them home.
About 30,000 U.S.-led and NATO troops are in Afghanistan to protect the elections, the last phase of a plan for political development agreed by Afghan factions and the international community after the Taliban were overthrown in 2001.
