Afghanistan Ain't Going So Well

It's getting to be a semi-regular event ... when the Prince of Darkness Robert Novak writes a column critical of George W. Bush.

Check out his latest, titled "U.S. Is Lost in Afghanistan," the product of some conversations with military guys on the front in that "forgotten war." (And thanks to P.L. for the link.) The best Novak can say for those poor soldiers is that they're depressed over their leadership and the general situation. Their general doesn't have a clue. It seems increasingly unlikely "if not impossible" that Osama will be captured. And the Afghan government of Hamid Karzai reeks of corruption, propped up by American force.

Just ordinary by-products of El Presidente's Iraqi-centric obsession.

But just wait for the scandal involving members of the U.S. military trafficking in poppy dust. Bound to happen eventually.
