Gen. David Petraeus' promotion—from commander of multinational forces in Iraq to the head of U.S. Central Command, encompassing American military missions in all of central and south Asia, including Iraq and Afghanistan—is by now old news, though it was announced only on Wednesday. So is the elevation of Petraeus' deputy, Gen. Raymond Odierno, to take his place in Baghdad.
Well, congrats, generals. You got a lot of work cut out for you in Iraq, but the situation in Afghanistan is even worse.
The Bush administration—and, therefore, the U.S. military—currently has no strategy for Afghanistan.
