Mission Not So Accomplished

So you thought the Taliban wasn’t a threat any longer in Afghanistan? You had the impression that things were going great there for the US and it’s coalition partners trying to maintain security and for Hamid Karzai’s government trying to sustain peace in the war-torn nation for the first time in years?

Well, things aren’t so swell. Message to Bushie: Mission NOT So Accomplished. Stick that in your flight suit.
