Bruce Springsteen, who traditionally seen as a Democrat and prevented the ex-President’Ronald Reagan from using his ‘Born In The USA’ anthem on the campaign trail in the Eighties, reportedly backed American intervention in Afghanistan to annihilate Taliban and al-Qaeda forces.

The Boss told The Times: “The war in Afghanistan was handled well.

It was deliberative, which I wasn’t counting on. I expected a lot less from this administration.”

Bruce Springsteen‘s new album, ‘The Rising’, which is out today (July 29), contains several tracks about the terrorist attacks and the aftermath.
