“‘We need a strategy in the United States that defines our role in Afghanistan, defines our objective and explains how we can get from here to there,’ Warren said.”
The objective is to wipe out terrorism. We get from here to there by providing the military what it needs to do the job…more troops and more money. So Liz, stop being a pompous ass and get it done.
