...the debacle in Afghanistan continues. Not sure what's worse; the fact that such incidents have been allowed to happen, or that the U.S. Government goes to such great lengths to cover them up, or bury and ignore them along with our fallen and wounded when word does leak out. \:\(

"...Lance Cpl. Gregory Buckley was working out at a base gym in Afghanistan when he and several other Marines were ambushed by an Afghan police chief’s teenage “tea boy,” military officials have said. The attacker turned an AK47 assault rifle on them, wounding one Marine and killing Buckley and two others. Six months after that August massacre in Helmand province, the families are still waiting for answers..."

We have GOT to get those guys out of there!

1. Load every single American on aircraft.
2. Drop every Daisy Cutter in our inventory on the way out.

ps. I hope the tea boy met his maker that day, regardless of his age. Teenage Afghanis are old enough to die for Allah.

Nope. See excerpt from the linked article:

"...the Corps concluded its investigation and classified it as a homicide. They turned it over to NCIS, and the family has felt stonewalled since. They believe...that the Pentagon wants to turn Aynoddin back over to the Afghan government, rather than prosecuting him."

Longest conflict in American history and seems like no one cares except some of us on this board.

Our current pResident hates the military. I'm not convinced that he is not allowing or facilitating such horrors to demoralize our forces and punish them for voting (R) by vast majority.

Exactly right! The "media" is just the propaganda arm of the Obama administration.

There's no doubt that The Kenyan-in-Chief loathes and despises the US military, but similar gross injustices were visited upon our troops during the Bush Admnistration. There's plenty of American blood on the hands of both Presidents who've served since 9/11. See my signature line. It's been there since well before the 2008 election. Neither commander has been worthy of those he commanded.

Agreed. Bush was a poor CiC and lacked the proper people in his administration to wield that power effectively and in our best interest.

However, I fear this administration not only lacks the fortitude to do well, but they intentionally manipulate the situation for the opposite effect.

It's one thing to poorly select your advisors. It's another to intentionally drive for a negative outcome.
