So have our troops totally EXTERMINATED the Taliban?

The REASON we invaded Afghanistan (and not Saudi Arabia) was that while the 9/11 attackers were from Saudi Arabia, the TALIBAN gave Osama SANCTUARY for his terrorist training camps in Afghanistan.

So, unless Obama has completed our mission of eliminating the Taliban in Afghanistan, what is to stop another Osama from getting sanctuary from the Taliban to plan another 9/11 attack??

We should not leave until our primary goal of eliminating the Taliban has achieved.

The elimination of the Taliban was never an AMERICAN POLICY in Afghanstian. Nor was setting up a democracy.

We can barely support our own citizens why is it on us to bring civility to Afghanstian at our cost?

Not to worry, he's leaving 10,000 US troops there for taliban and afghan trainee target practice. Over 50% of casualties the past few years have been afghan trainees turning their US supplied arms against their US trainers.

Evidently, US troops are fleeing Afghanistan without looking backward like the biblical escape from Sodom and Gomorrah by Lott and his family knowing that Afghanistan will fall to anarchy and chaos by the al Qaida and Taliban terrorists that will restore the days before the war started in Afghanistan more than 13 years ago. Obama's plan to remove US troops from Afghanistan within the next year or so before the 2016 elections will give the al Qaida and the Taliban Mozlem Brother terrorists the control over Afghanistan and bringing the reactionary Shariya laws of the 7th century back to Afghanistan, thus erasing all US achievements in more than 13 years that cost the sacrifice of more than 2110 Us troops and sending more than trillion dollars to the Mozlem Brother regime of Afghanistan. The American trillion dollars that Obama will continue flowing to Afghanistan will be now used by the Mozlem Brother terrorists of the Taliban and al Qaida to build the terrorist regime of Afghanistan which will be hostile to America. Obama is pulling US troops within a year or so will bring to the biggest defeat of US troops to the Mozlem Brother terrorists that Obama is offering ridicules 5 billion dollars to defeat them when their rule is expanding rapidly over the Middle East, Asia and Africa. The Mozlem Brother scholar Obama who loved studying the Mozlem Brother culture of death and destruction to America, Israel and the free world was able with the support of Hillary Clinton to push the Mozlem brotherhood to control more countries than ever before using lies and the collaboration of RINOs of the GOP led by John McCain to weaken America to the days of more than 70 years ago while allowing the rise of the Iranian regime sponsored terrorists of al Qaida, Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Fattah, PLO and others which put the entire world under the threat of nukes and WMDs attack in the quest of the Mozlem brotherhood to push the Caliphate rule over the free world led by America and Israel. Obama was able to deceive the American people and the world in his successful support of the worst enemies of the American people that seek the demise of America led by the Satanic Khomenei.
