Today, President Obama announced the results of the administration's much-publicized "December review" of the Afghanistan War strategy. He claimed we're "making progress," but he failed to tell Americans the whole story.
- Civilian casualties are up. So much for protecting the population.
- Troop deaths and injuries are up sharply. So much for supporting the troops.
- The insurgency has become a national movement, extending the tentacles of its shadow government across the country. So much for breaking their momentum.
This war isn't making us safer, and it's not worth the cost.
That's why the American people have given the president's Afghanistan project a big, fat "F." The latest ABC News/Washington Post poll shows that a record number of Americans say the war isn't worth fighting. Public disapproval is now at Iraq-War levels.
