One more casualty of the Iraq fiasco

Once more the consequences of Bush’s folly in Iraq are made evident with the continued deterioration of conditions in Afghanistan:

The respected military analyst Anthony Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies today released a briefing on Afghanistan that includes some charts, like the one above, that really give one pause. They show an up-tick in IED (Improvised Explosive Device) incidents, suicide bombings, and yes, U.S. casualties. One slide, based on U.N. data, shows expanding areas deemed to be “Extreme Risk/Hostile Environment.” Those areas now make up a third of the country.

George W. Bush isn’t just a moron, he’s been criminally negligent. And he’s the guy to whom the Democratic Congress is about to give new authority to spy on Americans!
