Last year I posted here, and at my blog at Standpoint Magazine, a series of "hard questions" for then-Senator Obama, who had shown himself during the primaries and election campaign unusually adept at avoiding such.
Herewith a new edition of Hard Questions for President Obama.
1) What are the US goals in Afghanistan?
2) What, so far as we understand, do the Afghan people want?
Given the degree and length of US and NATO involvement, answers to these questions should be clear, as for instance they are in Iraq, yet they are not.
Readers' answers in the comments section are welcome.
