We're Losing Afghanistan By Every Metric That Matters | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


We're Losing Afghanistan By Every Metric That Matters

The national conversation has been focused on North Korea and Russia lately, while talk about counterinsurgency tactics has centered on fighting the Islamic State in Iraq, Syria, and northern Africa. Meanwhile, you hardly hear anything about the centerpiece of the counterinsurgency strategy that kicked off this Global War on Terror: Afghanistan.

The news out of there is grim. A report released today by a watchdog U.S. government agency details what's been happening in Afghanistan as the United States' attention has been fixated elsewhere: The coalition is losing Afghanistan by every metric that matters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except for the opium. The US is still getting that opium, and that makes it all worthwhile! :)
