Gun-shy Army brass let Taliban get away

Got an e-mail a little while ago from war correspondent extraordinaire Michael Yon, who pointed me towards his phenomenally depressing new column about Afghanistan with this pithy message attached:
We are going to lose that war. We are not seriously trying to win it.
And right on cue comes today’s front-page story in the New York Post. Kerry Sanders, the reporter at NBC who broke it, is blogging about it here. If it’s true — and I say “if” because there’s some question whether Taliban fighters really would dress as uniformly as they appear to be here — you could make a good case that this incident is the absolute nadir of the war on terror.
Nothing else needs to be said. Except this.
Meanwhile: Here’s a “video comment” I received this afternoon from a YouTube user in response to my CNN 9/11 clips.
