"We don't need the Americans," Afghans say the U.S. should leave the country

A suicide bomber detonated a car bomb near Kandahar airfield base that left one U.S. soldier dead and three others injured. The Taliban has claimed responsibility, calling the bomber a brave fighter.

Bombing at NATO base in Kandahar shortly after Panetta departure

The timing is important to emphasize because it happened shortly after Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Erin Burnett left the base. The message from the U.S. is clear: terrorists will not win here.

But what is the reality on the ground?

    3 of my family members are in Afghanistan. I can't wait for them to comeback.. We don't want to be there either.
