The Afghan pull out

President Barack Obama announced plans Wednesday to pull 33,000 U.S. troops out of Afghanistan well before next year's election, signaling a rapid drawdown sure to please Americans weary of the nearly decade-long war and its costs.

He's pulling out the additional "surge" troops he put in, which will leave 70,000 troops in Afghanistan - - twice as many as were there when he was elected.

And, he's leaving us with a war with no end in sight.
