A new Rasmussen poll finds that 51 percent of Americans want all U.S. troops removed from Afghanistan, not just the numbers ordered to return home by President Obama.
Talk Radio News Service Washington correspondent, reporting for News Talk Online on the Paltalk News Network, says the administration made it clear there’s a need to keep troops in country, to ensure that the Taliban not regain a foothold there. But, perhaps, she suggested, this wasn’t communicated effectively to the American public.
Meanwhile, attempts on Capitol Hill Friday to defund the war in Libya failed – much to the surprise, Jones said, of many observers who thought that it had enough support to pass.
