The Associated Press reports that President Obama "plans to ask Congress for an additional $33 billion to fight unpopular wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, on top of a record request for $708 billion for the Defense Department next year."

This request comes in the middle of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, at a time when our country can least afford it.
