The President's speech on Afghanistan
Last night, President Obama gave a speech about the future of our military engagement in Afghanistan -- and the role America should play in the world.
If you didn't watch, take a moment to listen to the President talk about his decision to bring thousands of troops home from Afghanistan -- and pass it on to your friends.
As I watched, I was struck by the importance of this moment. In 2009, when President Obama announced the Afghanistan surge from West Point, he said that he would begin the process of bringing troops home by July of this year. Now, that's exactly what will happen.
For almost a decade, we've been fighting in Afghanistan, but as of last night, there's a new way forward.
Take a moment to watch -- then share this speech with your friends:
