I want to know why we are considering deploying 40,000 additional troops into Afghanistan when Hillary Clinton just said, "Clearly, al Qaeda left Afghanistan and we let them out. You know, we should have taken them out when we had the chance back in '01 and '02. And they escaped, and they escaped into Pakistan."
This was taken from an interview with Greta van Susteren on her recent trip to Pakistan. I know that a lot of people think we are in Afghanistan to help secure democracy there, in my opinion, not something we are even doing well here these days. I just don't see the reason to put lives at risk in Afghanistan. If you do, please tell me why.
