Letter: Time to leave Afghanistan is now

To the editor:

In regard to media reports that there have been 41 attacks by Afghan soldier on coalition troops this year.

In view of the fact that our coalition forces’ main task is to train Afghans to provide for their own security, is it not time to plan on withdrawing U.S. and other troops now, rather than in 2014? Is it not likely that these insider attackers were “trained” by us?

What do we have to gain from staying on in Afghanistan?
