reviewing afghanistan policy NOW?

The de facto Bush Administration (I won't have to write that phrase soon) is urgently reviewing its Afghanistan policy because you know, it ain't going so good there.

They are reviewing it NOW? Seven years after starting out so well there?

Yes, largely because, as Barack Obama keeps reminding John McCain, we started withdrawing troops from Afghanistan before Bin Laden was captured and the Taliban eradicated to start on the George Bush and Dick Cheney neocon project to remake the Middle East in their image, starting with Iraq.

Recently a senior British official said Afghanistan is unwinnable. But we can't afford to leave the Taliban in place. Verily a conundrum. Pity the Bush regime took the eye off the ball.
