That was the question recently asked by former Army captain Will Walsh, a veteran of the U.S. military destruction of Fallujah, when he heard that the city had fallen again to al-Qaida-linked groups. “‘The question I have to ask myself is was that effort in vain?’ he says now. ‘Was all the work that we did, all the sacrifice that we had, what is the benefit?’”

Good question, Will, but I already answered it–back in 2008. Every U.S. soldier who died in Iraq died in vain and for a lie.
