Does the war in Afghanistan have an end?

What is the U.S. role in Afghanistan and where and how does it end? Does the death of Bin Laden change the equation? How does Pakistan fit in? CNN’s Kiran Chetry talks to Lisa Curtis, former CIA analyst and former state department adviser, and David Rittgers, legal policy analyst at the Cato Institute and former special forces officer in Afghanistan, about the future of the U.S. war in Afghanistan following the killing of Osama bin Laden.

    I just don't know how much more we can do? the government in the country doesn't seem very effective and to keep our military people in harms way doesn't seem very wise. The thing that bothers me the most is that when we leave is the country going to turn into a country that is run by terrorists?

    We will not leave the Afghan region for many years. We put into power Karzai whose brother is one of the biggest drug Czars and who is on the C.I.A payroll and we are guarding the poppy fields, who is make money of the Opium, because we have not stopped it, we are protecting the 500 billion dollar industry, then you have the trillion dollars worth of minerals, are you gonna tell me we army going to be touching that? Then who is? It's all a sham!
