I really wish you had the intelligence and courage to be the first Democratic president since Woodrow Wilson to end a war without trying to extend The Great American Empire. With your JCS Chairman and others saying we will never leave you shitty little war in Afghanistan, I guess they have you buffaloed with their piles of statistics and brave words. The unanswered question is how do you complete the mission in a war that has no mission? A war whose only purpose is to kill Americans and drain the Treasury.
Robert MacNamara realized that Viet Nam was a mistake in the sixties but did not publicly admit that until many years later. Is this what we can expect from you? Thirty years on you making an apology to all the people needlessly slaughtered because you had not the courage or wit to end your shitty little war.
