I found this nugget in a post by digby

With Dick Cheney out there shamelessly accusing the president of “dithering” after having punted for eight years, caring nothing about Afghanistan, ignoring Pakistan even to the extent that they didn’t even bother to find people knowledgeable of the region to staff their embassies.

First, they couldn’t staff the embassy in Afghanistan with anyone that spoke any of the local languages, i.e., Pashto, Dari or Farsi.

Second, they rotated people in and out of the embassy so much that six weeks became a long tour.

And Cheney has the gall to criticize Obama?

Like in Viet Nam, the Taliban will simply wait for us to get tired.
