The other war... Afghanistan

-- by Thomas Leavitt

Let's not forget that there's another war going on, and American soldiers are dying on a regular basis there too: "13 have been killed in August alone". Not to mention quite a few Afghan policemen and soldiers (and civilians, as in Iraq).

GI Death Toll in Afghanistan Worst since '01

Other excerpts: "... Al Qaeda was paying renewed attention to the country this year."

As if we needed more evidence of how wrongheaded the "we're pinning them down in Iraq" argument is.
