Bush Quagmire I

Maybe the whole point of invading Iraq was to distract attention from the mess the Bushies have made in Afghanistan. The Doctors Without Borders aid organization is pulling out of the "country" after five of its workers were killed in an ambush in northern Afghanistan on Wednesday. CNN adds:
Afghanistan, which is grappling with a growing drug trade and sporadic violence, is a key security concern for the West two years after a U.S.-led coalition toppled the militant Islamic Taliban regime for harboring Osama bin Laden.

Almost half of Afghanistan is still not safe, with warlords yet to be disarmed and a stubborn Taliban and al Qaeda insurgency persisting in the south and east.
