In case you haven't been paying attention, Congress is at a standstill. That is the answer to your "WTF".<quoted text>
That's an illusion every bit as grand as the right's fantasy of "less government".
In 2006 Democrats swept into Congress largely on the promise of ending the wars. Its been 7 years, longer than the wars had lasted before they took Congress.
Fact is, Obama never said he was going to "end the wars". He said he was going to end the war in Iraq; "refocus attention on the terrorists who actually attacked us on 9/11" by moving our focus to Afghanistan; and build up Afghan forces so we could transition out. He has done all these things.
