Exit Strategy? Walter in Denver

Just a reminder: Even justified foreign interventions can have unintended long term consequences.

Catching U.S. officials slightly off guard, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said yesterday he is seeking a long-term security partnership that could keep U.S. troops there indefinitely and make permanent the military relationship that began when U.S. forces invaded his country in 2001.

It will be hard to leave if the Afghan government wants us to stay.
