The bloody Sunday tragedy in Kandahar will bolster calls for a pullout both in the U.S. and Afghanistan.
As 2014 approaches and the American pullout becomes a daily reality, the work of WADAN has never been more essential.

He told them that he was not considering any reduction or pullout of U.S. forces, telling liberals not to get their hopes up.

Yes, Obama presided over the withdrawal American forces from Iraq, and announced a timetable for their pullout from Afghanistan.
Nor will polls showing increasing numbers of Americans fed up with the war induce Obama to press the pullout button.
