Washington was buzzing yesterday about a Washington Post story detailing the cost of the Afghanistan conflict, and how that may be a constraint on continuing the war. First of all, I don’t really believe this….just read some of the quotes, from hawks like Howard Berman and Norm Dicks, in that piece. They’re not talking about wasted funds, they’re talking about a war that has failed. And they’ve consciously shifted toward getting out.
