Jim Risen broke the storyin yesterday’s New York Times, but now you can read the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s full report about the narcotics problem in Afghanistan here. (PDF, sigh.) In a statement accompanying the release, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), the committee’s chairman, comments:
“Just this weekend, General Stanley McChrystal, the U.S. top military commander in Afghanistan, said in an interview that the Taliban are gaining strength and that the war is at a decisive moment,” said Senator John Kerry (D-MA.), Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. “This report takes a close look at the Administration’s new counter-narcotics strategy and I hope that it will encourage a renewed national debate on the risk and rewards associated with our increasing commitment to the war in Afghanistan.”
I don’t know what Kerry’s current thinking is about the Afghanistan war — more on that soon, I hope — but that’s quite the note of caution.
