Afghanistan spending

The US has spent $300 billion in Afghanistan. What did we get for our money? The New York Times reports that the Taliban is stronger today than at any time since 2001.
What kind of evidence do we need to change our policy? I am greatly disappointed in Obama. 300 billion would buy a lot of health care and help us get out of this recession, but he and a lot of our politicians do not see the connection.
