General Petraeus’ COMISAF Assessment via Michael Yon:

My favorite line:

“Now in fact the insurgents are increasingly responding to our operations rather than vice-versa, and there are numerous reports of unprecedented discord among the members of Quetta Shura, the Taliban senior leadership body.”

Sounds like the effort is worthwhile, nevermind that Obama doesn’t appear to support anything successful.  Seems to me that when we win this war is will be in spite of the CIC rather than because of him.
