Not only do they not have the tribal capacity (too many warring tribes) but the don't have the educational depth for liberty. Plus the Taliban are ingraciated with the Pashtuns, and they have Sanctuaries across the border in Pakistan. Pakistan has their work cut out for them if they think they can disrupt these sancuaries - they aren't even in the right locale right now.
The problem is this hands over the existing government to the Taliban, who will retake the country. Al Qaeda will have a safe haven.
As far as Cheney's military decision making.....He was against invading Iraq......b4 he was for it!

I'd argue with all the vacant areas on this planet to train in.....Why not go someplace easy?.......They could even easily trian in South America.....Central America...Java....you name it.
I see keeping troops in Afghanistan as a political trap Obama has fallen into & he needs to cut the cord & take his lumps from the far right.
They'll attack him no matter what he does anyway, right?......Why not do the right thing & just bring them home.
