Afghanistan War Helps Fuel Unsustainable Budget Deficits
Posted by Derrick Crowe on August 11th, 2009

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner recently said on ABC News’ “This Week” that U.S. deficits are unsustainable and have to be brought under control if our economy is going to fully recover.

U.S. policies in Afghanistan, however, undermine this goal. As Sunday’s Washington Post points out, our deepening involvement in Afghanistan will eventually cost more than the Iraq war.

We cannot afford it.

Watch Part Three of Rethink Afghanistan to learn more about the unsustainable costs of the war in Afghanistan.
