Afghan War Poll Finds That Two-Thirds Say That It Wasn’t Worth The Cost
07/26/2013 10:38 am EDT
Nearly 12 years after U.S. troops invaded Afghanistan, two-thirds of Americans think that the war was not worth the cost, according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released Friday.
Twenty-eight percent think the war was worth it, and 43 percent say that it has contributed to the country’s long-term security. The amount of those who think the war hasn’t been worth it, 67 percent, is a new high for ABC polls, and slightly exceeds those who thought the Iraq war was not worth it in April 2007.
The poll comes as relations between Afghanistan and the United States are at a low, following the collapse of peace talks between the United States and the Taliban, and President Hamid Karzai’s suspension of talks over a long-term security agreement after 2014, when coalition forces are scheduled to leave. President Barack Obama, frustrated with Karzai, reportedly is considering the idea of a so-called zero option of no troops beyond 2014. However, Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Monday in Kabul that he had not been asked to prepare the scenario.
