Infilitration of the Afghan Army is a well thought out and executred Taliban tactic that accomplishes many things.

#4 After one of our soldiers got drunk and went in and shot up a coupld of towns because of this this kind of thing stopped for about 3 to 4 weeks.
The Afghan campaign is, like everything else under Obama, is in complete shambles.
And the Republican party remains complicitly silent on this issue as well while our people are dieing.

#5 Repubs want out too. Obama has turned Victory into Ashes. The sooner we get out the better is what many are thinking, and they would be right. I pray for those we're going to leave behind though, and hope at least the Northern Alliance trained by us over the years are willing to clean some house.
I think we'll be nuking Pakistan/Afghanistan in 15 years though.
