I have been getting your paper for several months now and with each publication, I find myself more dedicated to reading every article. Although you have many distinguished writers, I am most drawn to the Op-Ed articles by Michael Walsh. His opinion piece on “America’s Army Betrayed” is very poignant and laser-focused on why we have been in Afghanistan so long. He points out, and correctly, that we have not had presidents and generals in the last decade who were interested in finishing the job. Americans need to accept that Afghanistan is not a country interested in having our form of government, a representative democracy.
