Obama administration announces that Afghan war won't end for US troops in 2013 . . . .

. . . or even necessarily 2014.


If [when] we become militarily involved in either Syria or Iran, you will need the fingers of a second hand to count the places that President Obama has been willing to send our military.

Today I spent half an hour talking to a father whose daughter received a Purple Heart for losing an eye in Afghanistan.  He is former military and proud of her, but you could see the haunted look in eyes when he said, "I just don't know why the hell we're still there, and why these kids are still getting killed."

I want to know that, too.
