“Karzai Call For Meeting Of Elders Questioned” (TIMES, 11/15/11)


     Hamid Karzai’s call for a “loya jirga” aimed at keeping U.S. troops in Afghanistan beyond the 2014 withdrawal date is outrageously audacious in view of a recent statement that his country would side with Pakistan in any confrontation with the United States.

     There can be no thought of a U.S. presence in that quagmire inherited from the Bush-Cheney administration beyond the year 2014.  In fact, Obama should give serious consideration to the withdrawal of our regular forces from Afghanistan even before that date.

     1817 American service members have already died in this war.  Enough is enough!
