We think a downsize of troops in Afghanistan should be conducted by the generals, with no political gamesmanship or attention. So much for our view.
We think this announcement is a slap in our troops' faces. While we want every American home as soon as possible, we don't want them used as pawns in a polling-numbers scheme for some politician who never wore the uniform.
We hope this announcement has military merit and the Afghans can begin to stand on their own. The cost tomorrow, if this is not the case, will be far more expensive than any polling gains today.
