More than a trillion dollars has been appropriated since September 11, 2001 for U.S. military operations in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere. This makes the “war on terrorism” the most costly of any military engagement in U.S. history in absolute terms or, if correcting for inflation, the second most expensive U.S. military action after World War II. picked by BernardBlack 5 days ago

 The massive dump of U.S. military secrets about the Afghan war is believed to have come from the detained Army intel analyst.
The massive dump of U.S. military secrets about the Afghan war is believed to have come from the detained Army intel analyst.
The huge library of secret military reports prepared from 2004 through last December documents the uncertainty of American military officers and their U.S. intelligence counterparts about the conduct of the war in Afghanistan, as well as their strong suspicion that Pakistan’s military spy agency, the ISI, was working against the U.S. there by bolstering insurgent groups. picked by bornbad 2 weeks ago

Congress is killing U.S. softly with too many laws and too much red tape. The US has too many laws, laws that make trivial actions illegal, actions that are not inherently wrong. The Heritage Foundation and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers are calling for fewer laws and for Congress to be required to justify the new laws that are passed. picked by 2manyusernames 1 month ago
