The Afghans know it is all a charade, and they see us as not only complicit, but actively involved. You cannot fight a terror war and build a weak state at the same time, and it was a terrible mistake to think we could." What that disconsolate diplomat is saying is that America is losing the Afghan war.According to the Post report, President Hamid Karzai is losing the confidence of his people and...

We will never give in. And we will never accept anything less than complete victory."This is what one expects of a commander in chief in wartime, speaking to the patriotic young midshipmen, who roared approval.To which Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean...
