Lost In Afghanistan
Charles Krauthammer says Obama is distracted trying to push his domestic agenda while American soldiers are dying for lack of a new strategy and resources. He and others worry that he simply doesn't care that much about foreign policy and dangers posed around the world compared to his desire to impose a domestic agenda that is more European-like and statist at home.
So far, sounds right.
Democrats used to say that the important war was in Afghanistan. But they only said that to politically justify their criticism of the Iraq War and the Bush Administration. They wanted to sound like they weren't simply a bunch of soft-on-terrorists-anti-war nuts. If winning in Afghanistan was so important back then, why is it not important now?
