Most Republicans oppose war in Afghanistan

in Uncategorized by

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that a majority of Republicans say for the first time that the war in Afghanistan has not been worth fighting.

“The poll findings are likely to present a challenge for Republican front-runner Mitt Romney, who has said that the goal in Afghanistan should be to defeat the Taliban on the battlefield. President Obama stepped back from that goal during his 2009 strategy review and has set the end of 2014 as the departure date for all U.S. combat forces.”
