Why the United States Might Never Leave Afghanistan

http://www.cato-at-liberty.org

In autumn 2001, America’s initial purpose in Afghanistan—which made perfect sense—was to destroy or incapacitate al Qaeda and punish the Taliban government that hosted it. This was accomplished 11 years ago. Today, the purpose of the U.S. mission is ill-defined, but clearly involves nation building. What the coalition desperately needs is an achievable, realistic endgame, not an indefinite timeline that commits thousands of U.S. troops to Afghanistan until or beyond 2024.

Curfew Imposed on American Troops in Japan After Suspected Rape

http://www.nytimes.com

The United States military imposed a curfew on Friday on all of its nearly 50,000 uniformed personnel stationed in Japan, as it tried to respond to public outrage over the suspected rape of a woman in Okinawa by two American sailors. The case struck a nerve in Okinawa, with its uncomfortable echoes of the 1995 gang rape of a schoolgirl by three American servicemen. That crime prompted huge demonstrations that for a time seemed to threaten the entire American military presence on the island.

http://www.courier-journal.com

Judging the man to be a homeless panhandler, a police officer asked him to leave, a confrontation ensued, a Taser was drawn, other officers were called and the man was taken down and handcuffed. The man cuffed and threatened with jail was neither homeless nor panhandling. He was a Purple Heart and multiple Bronze Star recipient. His case has resulted in an internal police investigation, sharp questioning from Fort Knox officials, and a potential lawsuit. But it also has prompted a new mandatory training program for police. Louisville Metro Police Lt. Col.
