As Obama tries to define the new normal in Afghanistan, some of us from the foreign-occupier countries are not buying it.
The Afghan people are certainly fed up with our atrocities and insulting treatment. President Karzai, caught between a rock and hard place, calls for our ouster after every innocent civilian death, then turns around and signs the agreement to keep foreigner patrolling his land for the indefinite future.
We need to raise this issue–get out of Afghanistan now–at every town hall meeting with candidates this summer. Let them know: Obama’s new normal is not ours nor the Afghan people’s.
