Today the White House will release its assessment of the troop surge in the war in Afghanistan, concluding that gains remain 'fragile and reversible.'

The goal of the war remains to to disrupt and defeat al Qaeda, but there's growing evidence that the American people don't think the war is worth fighting.

According to a new ABC News-Washington Post pollthat tackled that subject, a record 60 percent of Americans say the war in Afghanistan hasn't been worth fighting. Public dissatisfaction with the war has jumped by 7 points since last July.

The negative opinion toward the Afghan war has now reached the same level recorded for the war in Iraq.

Our question to you today: Do you think the war in Afghanistan has been worth fighting?
