(Wall Street Journal) President Barack Hussein Obama claimed today at a joint news conference with Afghanistan’s President Hamid Karzai:

“I want us to remember why we went to Afghanistan. We went into Afghanistan because 3,000  were viciously murdered by a terrorist organization that was operating openly and at the invitation of those who were then ruling Afghanistan.”

“It was absolutely the right thing to do for us to go after that organization…we have achieved our central goal which is–or have come very close to achieving our central goal–which is to decapitate Al-Qaeda; to dismantle them, to make sure they can’t attack us again.”
