    why not the Admin?  It would be huge if they declared "victory" and left? It would bypass all the domestic electoral BS (Big Bird?) and boost the President to re-elect.  Yes?

      Rethugs would accuse him of "cutting and running" in a heartbeat.

      Our entire Afghanistan policy has been a mess since Day One, but changing it right now would be political suicide.
