More Than Half of Americans Believe U.S. Failed in Iraq, Afghanistan

A recent Pew Research Center poll shows that 52 percent of Americans believe the U.S. failed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

According to UPI, this pessimism is shared by Democrats and Republicans alike.

When Osama bin Laden was killed in 2011, 58 percent of Americans believed the U.S. would achieve its goals. That number fell to 56 percent by the time U.S. troops began pulling out in November 2013, and by January 15, 2014, only 38 percent thought the U.S. succeeded.

Regarding Iraq, 51 percent of Republicans believe U.S. intervention ended in failure. 54 percent of Democrats and 52 percent of Independents agree.
