    his time to really study the situation.  With winter coming, he needs to take his time to formulate a new strategy.  With their neglect of the locals and their rampant corporate corruption, Bush/Cheney left our new administration a deteriorating, FUBAR situation. (my son ran an ANA Depot in '05-06 and we were already losing the trust of the Afghans)

      And Biden is providing common sense counsel, advocating against escalating that war and attempting to impose a purely military strategy to a hearts and minds conflict.

      I sure appreciate the Vice President offering this counsel and I'd bet that President Obama does as well.

        was totally upended by Cheney's no-bid, no oversight corporate greed.  KBR, XE, (Blackwater) Haliburton, Dynacorp, etc. really need to be held accountable along with the last administration.

          The root causes of the corruption, both ours and that of the Afghan government, need to be examined and cleared out before there can be any genuine success in that country.

          Absolutely.  There's no way around it.
