#1 More:
"The policy that Obama now pursues—and has been since the middle of 2011 (that is, 18 months after he put the counterinsurgency experiment in motion)—is essentially Biden’s policy."

#2 Taliban foot soldiers routed??? No, they are just layin' low, keeping their blades sharp & practicing their beheading skills for later.

#3 The Afghan army may have a few minimally competent units.

However, the Afghan air force barely exists. The reasons for this are many (Karzai's own fears of Afghans in planes is one reason). Anyway, without an air force to support ground ops and evacuate the injured, it will be a happy day for the taliban.
