Here, via Marc Ambinder, is Sen. Carl Levin today on “Face the Nation”:
LEVIN: It’s very do-able. The Afghans are known to be fighters. And there’s not that kind of ethnic division that existed in Iraq.
Um, yeah. The fact that Afghans are “fighters”…given that we’re fighting Afghans, how is this supposed to be reassuring? And on the ethnic divisions: yikes. This guy has been getting briefed on Afghanistan? Seriously? For eight years? Your average person who read “The Kite Runner” wouldn’t say something as weird as this.
