Americans Want to Get Afghanistan Right

I have mentioned previously that I worry that the quagmire of Afghanistan could destroy the good that Obama wants to do in the same way that Vietnam destroyed LBJ.  I have mentioned previously that foreign affairs elites are breaking with the once-consensus idea of adding troops to Afghanistan, urging Obama to “Get Afghanistan Right.”

Well, now it appears that the majority of Americans agree.  Only 1/3 of Americans approve increasing troop levels in Afghanistan.    I hope the Obama folk are listening.
