I spent last year in Afghanistan, visiting and talking with U.S. troops and their Afghan partners. My duties with the Army’s Rapid Equipping Force took me into every significant area where our soldiers engage the enemy. Over the course of 12 months, I covered more than 9,000 miles and talked, traveled and patrolled with troops in Kandahar, Kunar, Ghazni, Khost, Paktika, Kunduz, Balkh, Nangarhar and other provinces.
What I saw bore no resemblance to rosy official statements by U.S. military leaders about conditions on the ground. [my em]
Two shitbag fucking wars that accomplished nothing but make defense contractors rich and kill a buncha young Americans. We're out of Iraq and now it's time to leave this shithole too. The troops know it, most Americans know it, it's time for our leaders to get with the program and bring our people home.
