'Afghan War Progress Claim Not Credible'

On Thursday, the United States declared progress in its war in Afghanistan despite the fact that US-led troops had the highest fatality rate in the Asian country in 2010.

“The idea that this report should be reassuring or show that progress is being made, that the people should continue to rally behind the expenditure in lives and the expenditure in resources for a war that has now gone on for nine years… there is no credibility to that whatsoever,” San Francisco-based Richard Becker from ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) Coalition said in an interview with Press TV on Friday.

Releasing the war strategy review in Afghanistan, US President Barack Obama claimed Washington was "on track" in achieving its goals in the war-ravaged country.'
