Poll: Afghan War Not Worth Fighting

Two-thirds of the public believes the war in Afghanistan has not been worth fighting, according to a new poll. A Washington Post/ABC News poll found a record 50 percent of respondents “strongly” believe the 12-year war was not worth fighting, and 66 percent felt it was not worth the cost. The negative response to the Afghan war in the latest poll is 1 percentage point lower than the record disapproval in July. A majority of respondents in the Post/ABC News poll have felt the war was not worth fighting since 2010/The Hill. More here.

Question: Anyone out there think the Afghan war is worth fighting?
