Why No One's Talking About Afghanistan
Anyone who’s been paying attention to the presidential race probably knows that Mitt Romney went on a road trip with his dog strapped to the roof of his car. President Obama ate an ice cream cone with a spoon. Both of them are blaming each other for outsourcing jobs. And one candidate — you choose who — is better equipped than the other to turn this economy around. But something we seldom hear about is Afghanistan and the consequences of the war, which has gone on for 11 years.
Linda Bilmes has written a lot about the cost of this war. Last Sunday she wrote an editorial about how Afghanistan is almost nonexistent when it come to this Presidential race.
