The Obama Administration is about to publish its December review of the Afghanistan War. According to news reports, it's going to cite "progress," but the facts on the ground tell a different story. As our new video shows, the Afghanistan War makes us less safe and isn't worth the cost.
The facts are clear:
- 2010 is already the deadliest year of the war for U.S. troops, with at least 472 killed this year alone.
- 2010 is the deadliest year so far for civilians living in the war zone, with more than 2,400 killed this year alone.
- We're spending $2 billion / week on the war while Americans are out of work here at home.
- Yet, the president and his advisors seem dead-set on damaging their credibility by claiming "progress" in Afghanistan in the face of these easily available facts.
As our new video shows, this isn't progress. It's failure.
Help us get the truth out about the Afghanistan War. Watch our new video and share it with your family and friends. We can't let the administration get away with spinning this disaster of war as a success story.
