Obama Defends Strategy in Afghanistan

Obama Defends Strategy in Afghanistan -

Mr Obama is now dug in in Afghanistan (or perhaps Nixon's famous phrase, "hunkered down," is a propos). Whatever . . . but the point here is that he has deemed Afghanistan a "war of necessity," in sharp contrast to Mr. Bush's "war of choice."

Except that perhaps it really isn't a war of necessity. No matter. If it's a war "of necessity," it stands to reason that he has committed himself, and the rest of us, to "win" it.

Cue David Petraeus: "Tell me how this ends."
