This first episode was driven by the need to examine the intellectual confusion dominating the Obama Administration's need to draw down the surge in Afghanistan, effectively abandoning the Afghan theatre for a more successful approach as demonstrated with the bin Laden capture.
An American President cannot afford intellectual confusion while pursuing war aims. Counter insurgency (C.O.I.N.) doctrine is applicable to an Afghan theatre, whereas Pakistan is not. A simple inability to distinguish the political and cultural topography intrinsic to successfully applied counter insurgency and counter terrorism tactics invites DISASTER!!
