Kucinich: Are we in Afghanistan to Fight or to Fund the Taliban?

Whatever it is, it is clear that the American Govt., for whatever reason, does not want to leave Afganistan and they will try whatever they can to try and stay there.

They only know about troops but not contractors which outnumber troops.
How crazy is that?

Will we ever leave that country?
Honestly I doubt it
