Meanwhile, Off to the East...

The news, Dear Gentle Reader(s), from Afghanistan is not good, but not 100% bad, either.

American deaths in Afghanistan have reached the level of American deaths in Iraq.  Totally unacceptable.

On the other hand, the US Centcom website has some encouraging information about positive steps being taken in that other benighted country.

US Centcom's web site should be on your earmarked list, DGR(s).  You can also sign up for their daily email as well.

We are bombarded with information about foreign policy and war policy from political partisans.  US Centcom is doubtless attempting to put a positive spin on our efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan, but it also gives us information about the daily efforts to win over the hearts, if not the minds, of the citizens whose lives have been affected by terrorists, Talibani, and coalition forces.

We need as total a picture as we can get.

Trust, but verify.
