It was a goaless war with no end game in sight. There was no direction or plan to win afghanistan. No real end game and it went on for 20 years and cost trillions of dollars.

It wasn't goalless. It cost trillions of printed paper (or digital 1s and 0s) in exchange for real resources of all types.

I meant goals in terms of winning that war. As you rightfully point out there was actually a different agenda being carried out.

10-20,000 Americans left behind will be the excuse to go back in for another 20 years.
