10,000 troops in Afghanistan is the highest number ever deployed there. This is proof that even after 9/11 these schmucks had no plan or interests in dealing with terrorism. It appears brutally clear now that the only reason this crooks stole the White House was to get Iraq's oil, period.

Bush Revises Views On 'Combat' in Iraq
'Major Operations' Over, President Says

In fact, the 10,000 troops in Afghanistan represent the highest number of U.S. soldiers in the country since the war there began. By the time the Taliban government had been vanquished in December 2001, U.S. troops numbered fewer than 3,000 in Afghanistan. And three months later, in March 2002, when the last major battle against remnants of the Taliban and al Qaeda took place in eastern Afghanistan, about 5,000 U.S. troops were in the country.

These guys had no plan before 9/11, and half assed used Clintons plan after 9/11 as a smoke screen to the lead up to the invasion and occupation of Iraq's oil. Everything that is coming out about these crooks and liars can be proven by looking at their actions.

Ex-Governor of texas Anne Richards said it best about Bush, "Don't listen to what he says, watch what he does". More honest words have never been spoken.
