United States all the while waging war in a faraway country - in the hope, as stated by the Americans, to defend American interests and make the world safer from terrorism.

The media continually go on about the fact that Afghanistan was more secure, but are full and frequent, obvious evidence to the contrary. President and the United States are uneasy relationship, so tell briefly the story of a decade of war is not possible.
