67 percent of U.S: citizens believe that the war in Afghanistan was useless for the U.S. and hardly 28 percent consider it beneficial, revealed a survey published today. The research, conducted by the Washington Post and ABC News television network, showed the lowest level of approval since the start of the war in 2001 and a decline of 11 points from a similar survey conducted in March.
The poll asked, “Considering the costs to the United States versus the benefits to the United States, do you think the war in Afghanistan has been worth fighting, or not?” With 67 percent responding in the negative, the results reveal “a new high,” reports ABC, in the 21 such polls given since early 2007.
