Ambassador Speaking Sense On Line 1
When the Ambassador to Afghanistan tells you the host gov’t is for s–t and not to bother sending any more troops until they get it together (i.e. never imo), the President ought to seriously listen. If COIN is built on the building up of a legitimate central state, then a House of Cards would be more stable. Forget the state, the state (and certainly not Karzai) is NOT going to be of any use in Afghanistan.
