“U.S Reviews of Afghan Forces Raise Doubt On Training Goal” (TIMES, 11/6/09)


          Congratulations to Thom Shanker and John H. Cushman Jr. for the report on how slowly the training of Aghan security personnel is going. These reporters have made it clear that too many years will be needed to accomplish such a task and that McChrystal’s expectations are overly optimistic.

          Hopefully, Obama will take counsel from such reports and, as commander-in-chief of all U.S. forces, will order the withdrawal from Afghanistan. It is the only sensible course of action left to him.
