Obama: Afghanistan is ‘America’s war’
President Barack Obama told CBS’ Bob Schieffer that the war in Afghanistan was “America’s war.” The president was careful not to take responsibility for starting the war. “It’s the same war that we initiated after 9/11 as a consequence of those attacks on 3,000 Americans who were just going about their daily rounds, and the focus over the last seven years, I think, has been lost,” he said.
