Annie Kuster on War & Peace
I have been a consistent voice against escalating our combat involvement in Afghanistan. In October of 2009, I shared my thinking before the most recent troop surge, writing: "The cancer of Al Qaeda seems to have spread to Pakistan and beyond. A wider war in Afghanistan will have little impact on the Al Qaeda leadership outside that country's borders. Moreover our recent successes against Al Qaeda have come not in large scale military engagements in Afghanistan but through pinpoint attacks."
