(CNN) – I was on the air 10 years ago when President George W. Bush launched the war against al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan. If someone would have said to me then that 100,000 U.S. troops would still be fighting there a decade later, I would have thought that person was crazy. Who could have imagined the war in Afghanistan would be America’s longest war - longer than World War II and the Civil War combined?
And remember: It’s by no means over. As of now, U.S. troops are supposed to remain in Afghanistan for at least another three years, until the end of 2014.
