The bottom line is clear: Our vital interests in Afghanistan are limited and military victory is not the key to achieving them. On the contrary, waging a lengthy counterinsurgency war in Afghanistan may well do more to aid Taliban recruiting than to dismantle the group, help spread conflict further into Pakistan, unify radical groups that might otherwise be quarreling amongst themselves, threaten the long-term health of the U.S. economy, and prevent the U.S. government from turning its full attention to other pressing problems. -- Afghanistan Study Group

I've been looking on here for information after getting a phone call yesterday (Wednesday US EST) that a local young man serving in the Army in Afghanistan was critically injured by an IED. I'm not sure where he was based only that they were going out on a mission. Do you have any information about the Soldiiers or what type of IED attack this was? ANY information would be greatly appreciated. AS ALWAYS THANK YOU FOR SERVING, I HAVE A SON SERVING AND PRAYERS FOR A SAFE RETURN HOME FOR ALL SOLDIERS!!!'
