Our opinion: Afghanistan
Last week’s USA TODAY/Gallup Poll, taken after a U.S. soldier allegedly killed 16 Afghanis, suggests that 50 percent of those polled favor speeding up a withdrawal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan before the 2014 target pullout date. Only 24 percent of the 1,006 adults polled said they favor sticking to the planned withdrawal at the end of 2014. An astounding 21 percent of those polled favored staying in a war that has already lasted 10 years for as long as it takes.
