Hillary Clinton explained the mission in AfPak today (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/11/15/AR2009111501548.html?hpid=topnews):

"Our goal is very clear. We want to get the people who attacked us, and we want to prevent them and their syndicate of terrorism from posing a threat to us, our allies and our interests."

After 8 years of war, mission creep, thousands of US casualties, untold civilians dead, and a major escalation coming, is this really a credible assessment of our interests? Is this something you want to spend trillions of dollars on?
