Afghanistan, the New Vietnam?

Hosted by

President Obama kicks off a series of meetings tomorrow with the National Security Council about strategy for Afghanistan and Pakistan. Will Obama agree to the military's request for a troop surge? What effect will the dispute over Afghanistan's recent presidential election have on US policy? As American public support for the war in Afghanistan declines, will the President be more likely to pay attention to anti-war activists than his predecessor did? Will Afghanistan become Obama's Vietnam?
