As the U.S. remains distracted by the conflict it started in Iraq, the mission in Afghanistan gets further and further away from being "accomplished".
The Guardian has the story on the Taliban's resurgence in Afghanistan, which no have a presence in 54% of the country with unchallenged control of several districts.
Worse yet, they seem to be winning the war for the hearts and minds of Afghans. The failure of NATO to finish the job has led to constant conflict with Taliban and al Qaeda forces. Many Afghans would rather have peace under Taliban rule than chaos that democracy (if you can call it that) has brought to their country.
Will America's next president do anything to finish the war in Afghanistan? Will it be too late by then?
