"Al Qaeda Makes Afghan Comeback"
http://online.wsj.com/artic...2584.html?mod=foxbiz

Think this longish report in the Wall Street Journal gives a good snapshot of where we are in Afghanistan.

Report concludes with:

The problem, say officials, is that JSOC, with a global counterterrorism mission that gives it responsibility for strikes in Somalia, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan and other trouble spots, is already stretched thin. Relying on it to police Afghanistan's hinterlands as American forces pull out may be unrealistic, some officials said.

"We do not have an intelligence problem. We have a capacity problem. We generally know the places they are, how they are operating," said the senior U.S. military official, speaking of al Qaeda. The problem "is our ability to get there and do something."
