David Broder's formula for failure:

From his op-ed:
Corrupt and inefficient as [the people running Kabul] may be, they are less of a threat than the Taliban would be. And so we must prop them up.
Especially since he also writes:
[While American troops are in Afghanistan] the Taliban can continue to exploit public frustration with the dysfunctional Afghan government, recruiting new fighters perhaps as fast as McChrystal can woo people away.


Off topic, but have you seen this crystal-clear depiction of our strategy in Afghanistan?
