    The NEWS has largely been ignoring Afghanistan for years.

    Another waste of money, I fear.

    I have no problem if we're tracking down Alqada, but the word I'm hearing is that the tribal leaders of Afghanistan would like us to leave.

    They're no more enamored with the Alquada than we are, or so I have been lead to believe.

    But as unfortunate things happen in wars, and they're as likely to be killed because they're mistaken for Alqada operatives in that area where they're hiding, if they even try to track him down they're risking getting killed by US forces.

    Those people are damned tough, and I suspect they can more easily get those terrorists than we can.

    Why not pay them to do so?

    I understand that a LOT of the tribal leaders will gladly work for Viagra.
