What I find interesting about the piece "Afghan War Gains 'Fragile'" is in what it doesn't say. Where is the President's mandate to fight a war in Afghanistan, the "graveyard of empires" that is due to be even more violent than it was in 2010? The DNC decided in late February that the President doesn't have any such mandate. What he does have is a mandate to make serious, sizable withdrawals in July of this year.
