Do the math

We spend $1 billion each year  for every al Qaeda member in Afghanistan while schools go broke. For every al Qaeda fighter, we have 1,000 of our troops.

Listen to this interview with CIA Director Leon Panetta:
TAPPER: How many Al Qaeda, do you think, are in Afghanistan?

PANETTA: I think the estimate on the number of Al Qaeda is actually relatively small. I think at most, we’re looking at 50 to 100, maybe less. It’s in that vicinity.
