Afghanistan

Condi's Warning Shot

The usually well-mannered Condoleezza Rice is doing her best impression of Dick Cheney: “If you want another terrorist attack in the U.S., abandon Afghanistan,” she tells Fortune magazine. “The last time we left Afghanistan, and we abandoned Pakistan," she said, "that territory became the very territory on which al Qaeda trained and attacked us on September 11th. So our national-security interests are very much tied up in not letting Afghanistan fail again and become a safe haven for terrorists.” Condi’s quotes come after reports that the Obama administration is reevaluating its options in Afghanistan.
