Almost 65 percent of Americans now believe that the war in Afghanistan is not worth fighting. The number is up 20 points from results in 2009 when 44 percent did not think the war worth fighting, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Phi Beta Iota: Afghanistan, like Iraq, is an elective war founded on hundreds of lies to the public by a pair of Administrations who have substituted ideology for intelligence and profiteering for public service. The seismic change occurring today is centered on what can the public know, when. Public intelligence in the public interest is destined to kick in sooner with each passing year. One day, elective wars will be impossible.
