DANIEL DREZNER says that the war on terror is going well, but that things are deteriorating in Afghanistan.
StrategyPage has a more optimistic assessment of the Afghanistan situation. I don't know which assessment is right, but I suspect that Afghanistan has been a relatively low priority, given the holding-action treatment in light of the run-up to war in Iraq. That's okay, I guess, but now that the war in Iraq's over, we can't be giving it the holding-action treatment again on the basis that now we're busy with the reconstruction of Iraq.
