Geezus.  Our Tax Dollars will still flow to defense contractors so they get what they want but we’re “pulling all American troops out” of Afghanistan and renaming it a “training mission.”  Or something. It’s called endless war:

President Obama announced a plan on Tuesday to keep a contingency force of 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan beyond 2014 and pull all American troops out of the country by the end of 2016.

Obama said that the U.S. remains committed to assisting Afghanistan on two narrow missions after 2014: training Afghan forces and supporting counterterrorism operations against al-Qaeda remnants. He stressed that the U.S. will only sustain a military presence after 2014 if the Afghan government signs a Bilateral Security Agreement.

More…

We can pretty much bet that no matter what, even if we have to remove Hamid Karzai, someone will sign the Bilateral Security Agreement.  And am I the only one who our crappy so-called-news media hasn’t explained that agreement to?  Does anyone reading this know what’s in that thing?
