There are almost twice as many U.S. troops in Afghanistan now as when Barack Obama became president. We're still spending over $10 million every hour (even during a government shutdown) for a war in Afghanistan that has now completed its 12th year and entered its 13th. This spending drains rather than fuels the U.S. economy.
Inflicting more war on Afghanistan has involved the killing of thousands of civilians. Experts in the U.S., British, and Afghan governments agree that this is making us less safe, not protecting us.
President Obama is trying to negotiate an agreement with corrupt lame-duck President Hamid Karzai to keep some U.S. troops in Afghanistan indefinitely, with immunity from prosecution for crimes and the right to continue attacking Afghans including with raids on their homes at night. This could mean nine major U.S. military bases remaining in Afghanistan at a huge cost in dollars, lives, safety, and environmental destruction for decades to come.
