General Tommy Franks (Ret.) today penned an op-ed on the War on Terrorism and the two presidential candidates. He specifically addresses the issues of the attack on Tora Bora and the campaign in Afghanistan in general. He closes the piece thus:
- the gravest danger would result from the withdrawal of American troops before we finish our work. Today we are asking our servicemen and women to do more, in more places, than we have in decades. They deserve honest, consistent, no-spin leadership that respects them, their families and their sacrifices. The war against terrorism is the right war at the right time for the right reasons. And Iraq is one of the places that war must be fought and won. George W. Bush has his eye on that ball and Senator John Kerry does not.
