“Pakistan Rejects U.S. Account of Clash That Ended (TIMES, 1/24/12)

“1867 American service members…have died as a part of the Afghan war and related operations.” Some form of this statement regularly appears in the pages of this newspaper as questions continue to be raised as to the sagacity of the war, especially in the face of a breakdown of genuine cooperation between the United States and Pakistan. In fact, Pakistan is currently blocking “NATO supply lines passing through its territory.”

How can a war be fought this way? Why should more American service members be asked to risk their lives in such a shaky venture? It is a lost cause and should be recognized as such by the Obama administration. An exit strategy should be the order of the day. Bring our troops home!
