Yes, Let's Not Forget Afghanistan . . .

In one of those "let's check in on the former first lady & see how she's doing" interviews with Laura Bush, she said that she hopes President Obama does not get distracted by other matters because the U.S. should continue to have a presence in Afghanistan.

Fair enough. Although a few years to late. Did the reporter stop to ask Ms. Bush what she thought of her husband's abandonment of Afghanistan in favor of driving out Saddam and rebuilding Iraq in whatever little Neo-Con image he had in mind? Nope. Because we treat our ex-first ladies with kid gloves. But it's nice to know that at least one of the Bushes who currently lived in the White House thought our efforts in Afghanistan were important.
