The Pentagon has issued its latest report on the status of our efforts in Afghanistan. Training is not going well; only one Afghanistan brigade can operate alone, the twenty-two other cannot. Afghan soldiers don't like us, in 2007 they attacked our soldiers twice, so far this year there have been 37 attacks. Karzai's government's watchwords are stealing and corruption. The Taliban are doing well, with the help of our ally Pakistan. Violence is worse now than before the surge.
Why continue the charade?
