The Army is planning to spend as much as $100 million to expand its Special Operations headquarters in northern Afghanistan, evidence of its increasing reliance on covert operations.
The project is one of many in the Obama administration, as it seeks billions in budget increases to counter expanded terror threats from abroad. It also comes as thousands of U.S. troops arrive in Afghanistan as part of President Barack Obama's ordered buildup.
One has to wonder how much that one hundred million could do here at home to improve our country's crumbling infrastructure.
However, looking at the size of this investment, it is pretty safe to say that the US is never leaving Afghanistan.
