When do you think these recommendations on US policy in Afghanistan were made?
1. Change the balance of power
2. Oppose the Taliban ideology
3. Press Pakistan to withdraw its support
4. Aid the victims of the Taliban
5. Support moderate Afghans
6. Elevate the importance of Afghanistan at home
They were made last year, by an Afghan American scholar. You can read all about in Bush’s Favorite Afghan, an excellent article by Jacob Weisberg, over at Slate.
