The article offers the author's views on plans of the U.S. against insurgencies in Afghanistan. National Security Adviser James L. Jones notes that President Barack Obama revealed a plan in December 1, 2009, which aims to enhance resources in Afghanistan and further concentrate on Al-Qaeda and Taliban safe-camps in Pakistan. The author says that military forces have eliminated both terrorist groups; thus, war in Afghanistan is no longer a retribution for the incident on September 11, 2001.
