The best statement President Obama could come up with after the U.S. bombed and destroyed a hospital in Afghanistan, killing innocent civilians and volunteer doctors from Doctors Without Borders, was “We’re sorry”? This is why the rest of the world hates the U.S.
One group is demanding an independent international inquiry into a U.S. airstrike on an Afghan hospital over the weekend. What's the real reason behind the air strike that hit the Doctors Without Borders hospital?

While a Canadian judge honored the release of Omar Khadr, who was captured by the U.S. as a child soldier in Afghanistan and held at Guantanamo illegally, the U.S. is still after him when really we should be apologizing for his years of torture and confinement without charge.
President Obama had aspirations to get the U.S. out of Afghanistan and Iraq, but he has failed so far at living up to the expectations he has promised. We will hopefully see some more positive changes this year.
