My father is currently serving in Afghanistan. He is an E4 Specialist in the U.S. Army. When I ask him how things are going and what we are getting done over there, he says that they are getting nothing done. They aren't allowed to leave the roads, they can't fire unless fired upon, and can't engage an enemy within a certain distance from a mosque (so now the enemy knows where to hide).His battalion is about to allow the Afghan Army to run their FOB. They will be fighting the Taliban out of there in 2 weeks. I can't help but wonder what our military leaders are thinking or if they even think at all. I love our military but they need some leadership help. Please comment and if anyone has any clue on what the plan is from here let me know.
