    "This November, you get to decide the future of the Afghanistan war," Obama told some 13,000 people at a rally on the campus of the University of Colorado Boulder.  “We are bringing our troops home from Afghanistan. And I've set a timetable. We will have them all out of there by 2014,” Obama said in Boulder, Colo., in September 2012.
    PRESIDENT Obama while telling voters of his timetable, neglected to tell the Pentagon of it, so there is not even a plan to "have them all out of there by 2014” because he has not even requested it.

    Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said Wednesday  he has not been told to plan for such a withdrawal.

    For our fallen solders who come home from Afghanistan to Dover AF mortuary, "God bless the cause of "The Good War" for which they died" - As if any war can be called Good in its 13th year, America's longest war.
