From the Washington Post:
KUNDUZ, Afghanistan — Taliban forces were less than four miles from this strategic northern city Monday after seizing control of two key districts over the weekend, triggering fears that they could capture their first Afghan city since U.S.-backed forces toppled the hard-line Islamist regime in late 2001.
The government in Kabul has dispatched reinforcements, including Afghan special forces and their U.S. advisers and trainers, to try to repel the insurgents and rescue about 75 soldiers and police officers trapped inside their district base. But as of Monday evening, the Taliban remained in control of the districts, including one separated from Kunduz city only by a wide, brown river.
“It is a critical situation,” said Mohammad Omer Safi, the governor of Kunduz province.
The situation in Iraq is a mess; and now Afganistan is heading to the same place. Bush and Cheney should be held accountable for the loss of lives and waste of money due directly to their actions. They are the real “evil doers”.
