While the GOP Committee leader Michael Steele was explaining why the Afghanistan War from where the U.S. was attacked 2001 was unwinnable and declaring The Afghanistan War is President Obama’s war of chose. The new supreme allied commander of Afghanistan Gen. David Petraeus was taking the reigns and declaring “The U.S. Is In It To Win It”, and explaining the extreme Islamic threat Al-Qaeda and the Taliban are still in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
