I remember the outrage when we went into Afghanistan and (mostly) Iraq. To me its high time we GTFO of Afghanistan, people are losing sight of the mission, Bin Laden is dead, its time to go. I know when haven't heard much lately in the way of names of the fallen, so this is for them. I hope they can come home soon.

Wholeheartedly agree it's well past time for us to get the hell out of there. I'm tired of seeing the names pile up, too.

As for the gun story, anything talking about "subverting the Second Amendment" (the horror!) has me suspicious right away. I agree with PhilsFan, I'm not exactly seeing how that plan would be a good way to try and do whatever it is with the Second Amendment Pavlich thinks they're going to do.

This scandal has had 3 books already released on it. A lot of the first two have already been debunked for the most part. Glenn and Hannity have been foaming at the mouth about this for over a year, and then they have some expert on their show about it, and by the next time they talk about it there's a new expert saying the complete opposite of the last one. So every right wing hack is trying to complete the story before it actually breaks.

Everything I've read so far from all sides of the aisle it points to a FBI and DOJ screw up. Bigger than Iran Contra or Watergate? No. Sinister? No.

Government waste and criminal malfeasance or,

Keynesian stimulus?

Is there really a difference?

Karzai wants 'at least $2 billion' a year from US - Yahoo! News

Quote:
..

Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Tuesday said he wanted "at least $2 billion" a year from the United States after it withdraws its troops in 2014.

Karzai said the US should specify in a partnership agreement to be signed between his country and the US how much money it will give to Afghanistan after they leave.

"They (US) say we will give you money, but will not specify the amount. We say give us less, but write it down," Karzai told a group of university professors and students in Kabul.

"We want them to write down that America will give for Afghanistan's security $2 billion a year -- or at least two billion a year", he said. "If they want to give us more, they are welcome."

Karzai's comments came a day after he laid most of the blame for an 18-hour assault by squads of Taliban insurgents in Kabul Sunday on intelligence failures by NATO forces.

"The terrorists' infiltration in Kabul and other provinces is an intelligence failure for us and especially for NATO and should be seriously investigated," Karzai said in a statement.

The 130,000-strong US-led NATO force helping the Afghan government fight a decade-long Taliban insurgency is due to end combat operations and pull out by the end of 2014 and the two countries are in talks about their future relations.

Kabul has already achieved two preconditions for signing the treaty -- full control over the US-run Bagram prison and controversial special forces night raids against Taliban insurgents.

Officials on both sides have expressed hope that a strategic partnership agreement governing post-2014 ties could be signed ahead of a NATO summit in Chicago in May.

"We don't want them to spend a lot of money here, we would like to help them save their money, but give some to us too," Karzai said.

The US led an invasion of Afghanistan to topple the hardline Islamist Taliban regime for harbouring Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden after the September 11 2001 attacks on New York and Washington.

Since then it has led a NATO fight in support of Karzai's government against a Taliban insurgency, in which nearly US 2,000 troops have died, according to monitoring group icasualties.org.

Karzai might be a bit gauche to talk numbers that plainly, but I'm not sure your suggestion is any better.

^Hell yes, They don't show you the full photo here, but you know who is sitting on the other end of that tub, living it up on our dime?

Yep, you guessed. Obama!

And anybody else notice the way Obama and the Dems rushed to defend this waste of Big Government Big Spending!

INDY, help me out by throwing a few links to back me up on this!

Is there really a difference?
When Republican presidents get properly punished for any ethical scandals that happened on their watches, then we'll talk about punishing Obama for this one.

This is a really dumb situation for all involved, no question. It's absurd and they all should be fired for wasting money so horridly.

But I'm pretty darn sure Obama didn't okay this or would support them doing this.

(Now, see, if they'd just been your average rich people not involved with the government, blowing that sort of money on that kind of excess instead of giving that money back through paying more in taxes or helping out their communities and such would be okay! 'Cause they're rich and they can use their money as they wish!)

Romney aides point out Obama ate dog meat as a child

WASHINGTON -- In the latest tit-for-tat in Mitt Romney's lingering dog problem, aides to the Republican candidate are gleefully pointing out that President Barack Obama ate dog meat as a child.

The tale of Romney's Irish setter Seamus -- who traveled in a crate atop the family's station wagon on a 1983 trip from Boston to Canada -- has dogged the former Massachusetts governor for years.

Romney and his wife were most recently asked about the incident during an interview Monday with ABC's Diane Sawyer and Ann Romney's defense that Seamus "loved" traveling on top of the family car drew snickers from some Democrats and dog lovers.

Biting back Tuesday, conservative news site The Daily Caller made note of a passage in Obama's book "Dreams from My Father," in which the president recounted some of his adventurous eats while living in Indonesia with his stepfather Lolo Soetoro from age six to 10.

"With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chili peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy)," part of the passage reads.

Daily Caller blogger Jim Treacher commented, "Say what you want about Romney, but at least he only put a dog on the roof of his car, not the roof of his mouth."

Romney's campaign quickly seized on the anecdote. On Tuesday night, top Romney aide Eric Fehrnstrom re-posted a tweet originally made in January by Obama adviser David Axelrod that showed a picture of the president riding inside a car with his pet Bo, a Portuguese water dog.

In a jab at Romney, Axelrod's original caption read, "How loving owners transport their dogs." But Fehrnstrom commented, "In hindsight, a chilling photo."

Romney spokesman Ryan Williams also linked to an ABC report on the story on Twitter, saying, "Not the headline Team Obama was looking for."

Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt fired back, tweeting, "What's the next attack [Fehrnstrom] and the RNC will surface on a 6-10 year old?"

Asked about the back and forth during an interview with Ohio radio station WLW Wednesday, Romney said, "This campaign is going to ultimately become about jobs not dogs."

Let me get this straight, you mean you'd rather continue this war and then give these crooks $2billion per year minimum after we pull out?
