GREG DJEREJIAN IS DEBUNKING AFGHANISTAN MYTHS, and wonders whether this rather positive report on Afghanistan in today's New York Times will get the attention it deserves, especially from Bush's critics on the Left. He says that Kerry's got it wrong, too.
Meanwhile StrategyPage reports:
While al Qaeda manages to set off one or more suicide bombs a day in Iraq, it finds itself losing the war it is waging. The bombs are killing mainly Iraqis, and the Iraqis have noticed this. . . . Al Qaeda will fight on until the last of their members is rounded up by Iraqi police. But al Qaeda have already lost their war in Iraq.
I certainly hope so.
UPDATE: On the other hand, Stephen Green thinks that Bush is blowing it on Iran.
