Yesterday, we surmise, was one long headache for those in charge of the Afghanistan war on the Western side. Metaphorically, many good officers in the Pentagon and elsewhere stood in the middle of otherwise efficient offices holding their collective heads.

One makes the determination to soldier on, but larger forces may nonetheless be aligning in positions that are new and different. Perhaps this has happened.
