More than 37,000 Muslims have been killed in protracted violence in 2014 alone, despite the fact that five months remain in the calendar year.

I do not concur with President Obama's unilateral decision to succumb to the demands of a terrorist organization and return five senior leaders of the Taliban. And why did it take five years? Regardless, as Fox News reported, "U.S. Army soldiers who were serving with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl when he left his post and wound up in the hands of the Taliban say no one has contacted them, even though military brass are currently conducting a new investigation into the case."
Amid reports of widespread fraud and the possibility the entire Afghan presidential election will be delegitimized, President Obama on Tuesday called candidate Abdullah Abdullah and urged him to remain involved in the electoral process, rather than declare himself the winner and potentially throw the nation into chaos.
In his first term, President Obama all but declared victory in America's Middle East struggles.
President Barack Obama has tapped the vice chief of the Army to take over the U.S. command in Afghanistan later this year as America pulls out its combat troops and leaves a force of about 10,000 to train and advise the Afghan military.
The Defense Department's second highest-ranking official is in Afghanistan this week, meeting with deployed U.S. military troops and senior Afghan leaders. But notably absent from the agenda is a discussion with outgoing Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
"This is what happens at the end of wars." That is how President Obama justified his order to release five Taliban commanders from Gitmo in return for the release of Sgt.
