Gates Doubts U.S.’s Afghan Strategy– counterinsurgency might no longer be viable

posted by GeoT

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama met with senior counselors for three hours Wednesday to launch his review of Afghan war strategy, amid indications that his defense secretary — the key link between the White House and the military — is among those undecided about the right approach.

In an interview Wednesday, a senior defense official said that Defense Secretary Robert Gates now worries that counterinsurgency might no longer be a viable approach for countering the Taliban violence roiling once-stable parts of north and west Afghanistan.

Mr. Gates, a Bush administration holdover, has emerged as one of Mr. Obama’s most trusted advisers, so his views carry significant weight in the deliberations.

“Even 40,000 more troops don’t give you enough boots on the ground to protect the Afghans if the north and west continue to deteriorate,” the official said. “That may argue for a different approach.”

Posted by TheLCster

HuffingtonPost–Voters in swing states say they are more likely to re-elect Senators who support the Clean Energy Jobs Bill, according to a new poll.

The poll, conducted by the political consulting agency Benenson Strategy Group, interviewed 814 registered voters in 16 swing states.

60 percent of respondents said they were much more likely to re-elect a Senator who supported the energy bill that passed the House in June 2009. Conversely, 52 percent said they would be less likely to vote for Senators who vote against the bill.
