Our longest war!

The American Revolution in 1776 won our independence. There unfortunately have been multiple wars since. But our longest war is one we are engaged in now, in Afghanistan.

It began Oct. 7, 2001, in response to the Afghanistan-based terrorist attacks on New York City and the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001.

Almost a decade later, American troops are still in Afghanistan. How and when can we find a satisfactory end that does not allow terrorists there to attack us again?
