White House Holds Contest to Decide Why We're in Afghanistan

WASHINGTON, DC- Having been unable to articulate a clear goal for US forces in Afghanistan, Pres. Obama has launched a nationwide contest to answer the question, "Just what are we doing over there, anyway?" The president is urging all Americans to email the White House with suggestions.

"We're already getting great stuff," an administration spokesperson says. "So far the most popular answers are 'making the world safe for democracy,' and 'opening a Starbucks in Kabul,'" adding, "At this rate we're bound to come up with a good reason for being there."

Inquisition readers can submit their own answers in our comment section below (look for the tiny, tiny link that says "COMMENTS"). The winner will receive an all-expense-paid weekend for two in Kandahar.
