President to Unveil Afghanistan Strategy

U.S. decision will affect region, Pakistan

Tuesday, December 01, 2009

President Obama will announce his strategy for Afghanistan in a speech at West Point tonight. He is expected to send roughly 30,000 more troops to the war and discuss the criteria for an exit strategy. Besides America and Afghanistan itself, the country that stands to be most directly affected by these next moves is Pakistan. Hassan Abbas, Bernard Schwartz Fellow at the Asia Society and senior advisor at the Harvard Kennedy School at Harvard University, joins us to discuss our ongoing strategy.

Does anybody really need an "unveiling" of the strategy in Afghanistan? Like who in the world can't tell by now that the idea is to escalate till the country is on its knees and broke, and 'by country' I don't really mean Afghanistan
