Do you also know the only other compmany that was qualified was a french company...so will you please do your research....unless of course you prefer to keep US citizens from working and giving away jobs to the french.

    Well, OBOZO, if you take the handcuffs off, let the Military do their job, they probably can execute and win in 3 years.....

    We will still be there in 20 years. Just ask Germany and Japan.

    OBAMA is the worst president, maybe worse than Carter.

    Get agressive, quit hancuffing the troops, go in, destroy the taliban, and then you can leave.

    If you were more aggreissve, you probably can get out sooner than 3 years.

    It is true that no one can win the war on Afghanistan. They play the game in a sneaky, yet efficient manner. It is also ture that we the Americans created the Taliban by funding them and supplying them with weapons to oust the Russians. Yet, at this moment we need new troops to build and support the people of Afghanistan, who have had no part in the bombings and destructions. Besides during these economic times ending the war would put so many soldiers out of work. Therefore for the time being this is the best and most though-out solution to the problem. Once the depresssion and recession is over, we can bring the troops back and end this stupid war and live in peace with the rest of the world. Obama is a smart and calculative president. His decision is the right one!!!

    Unbelievable, how the complete incompetence; Naivete; and ineptness of President Obama is demonstrated Every single day. This is clearly Besides his 'Well-Documented Reputation' as the " Lowly-Groveler" and a "Butt-kisser" on the world stage. "He's been an abject failure with everything he's tried." Now One full year into 'Obonzo's' single-term Presidency, and he's 'definitely;' the man of NOTHING except "Lot's of Hot-Air and Empty-Promises."

    Sure am glad you people weren't around to request a deadline....we'd still be british citizens, or have slavery, or maybe even speaking german....what a puling bunch of cowards! Either go in to win, which mean the taliban people are going to die, or bring them home and then we can have another 9/11 and our people will die....

    Wow, I didn't realize just how many people actually think they know more than the PRESIDENT and his wide variety of educated and experienced ADVISORS. If you're all so smart and know exactly what this country needs to do, then why don't you get your lazy butt up off the couch and run for public office!?!

    Yeah right..., and he's going to get Osama this year too(eyes rolling).

    The subtle arrogance in Obama's delivery is almost as hularious as the progressively liberal morons believing it!
