Obama inherited a quagmire, for sure. The war in Iraq had no relation to the threat the US faced, the one in Afghanistan did, but only indirectly. The effort has not been as easy or successful as anyone would have hoped for.

At least our continued involvement in the region led to the successful killing of Osama bin Laden.

Yup, and the guy who made it possible is rotting in a Pakistani jail...

But now I think it's time to hasten our getting out as I heard Obama is looking into doing. For me, the sooner the better that it can be safely done.
