Obama Administration Confusion Over Afghan Policy

Glenn Greenwald notes the wildly diverging lines coming out of the White House on Obama’s Afghan strategy:

On the vital question of whether Obama is committed to begin

withdrawing troops from Afghanistan in July, 2011 — or whether that’s

just an aspirational target subject to being moved — the statements

from key administration officials aren’t merely in tension with one

another, but are exact opposites.
