Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says there is no clear set of conditions in Libya that will trigger an end to the combat mission.
General Stanley McChrystal commander of U.S. and NATO forces says his forces could defeat insurgents on the battlefield, but could not ultimately win the war unless the Afghan government earned the trust of its people. In an interview with Reuters he said that one of his top objectives was to put corruption centre stage. This comes on the heels of a military offensive in Helmand province several more weeks of the "clearing phase" of the operation.
France has agreed to sell a sophisticated new weapon to Russia. As a result Pentagon officials are worried the Mistral class warship will improve Russia's ability to threaten Georgia and other Eastern European allies. A Pentagon spokesman says U.S. allies in Eastern Europe are nervous about it. As Secretary of Defense Robert Gates visits officials in France, a question looms. Why did the French do that considering they are a member of NATO and Russia is not.
Are there problems ahead for the Obama administration and Pakistan? If the current situation is any indication, there may be. The U.S. wants the Pakistanis to engage Afghan militants operating in Pakistan to assist the NATO war against the Taliban in Afghanistan. Pakistan says it has its hands full with its own war. This is a serious problem, because the U.S. needs Pakistani cooperation on this in order to make its new strategy on the Afghan war to work.
State Hillary Clinton met with NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen and reassured him the commitment to Afghanistan is not open would not need to be open-ended. "The need for additional forces is urgent, but their presence will not be indefinite," she said, noting that Obama's timeline called for Afghans to begin taking over in July 2011. "At that time, we will begin to transfer authority and responsibility to Afghan security forces, removing combat forces from Afghanistan over time with the assurance that Afghanistan's future, and ours, is secure," Clinton said.
