U.S. casualties on the rise in Afghanistan.

The N.Y. Times has a story detailing the horrible consequences of the Iraq debacle regarding the true war on terror in Afghanistan.

President Bush today repeated his canard regarding the Iraq adventure being about us fighting them there rather than here. He says: "The only way to defend to our citizens where we live is to go after the terrorists where they live," The absolute silliness of this statement regarding the war in Iraq is breathtaking. We have sacrificed thousands of our citizens in an undertaking that had nothing whatsoever to do with the war on terror. The true war on terror was/is justifiably taking place in Afghanistan. And it is because of this administrations bumbling adventure into Iraq that the justifiable war in Afghanistan is becoming more and more deadly to our armed forces.

See this earlier post for more detailed reasons that this reasoning is flawed.
