Since the day we went into Afghanistan and then Iraq, it has NOT been about the safety or security of the United States. It has been about revenge (for a short time) and George Bush's need to prove his masculinity. Why President Obama hasn't gotten our troops out of Afghanistan sooner is beyond me.
