Don't Move Troops From Iraq To Afghanistan--Yet

The Cafferty File, part of The Situation Room on CNN, poses a question every hour The Situation Room is on. This is today's 5:00 question, and Thoughts on the World's response.
5 p.m.: Two Democratic presidential hopefuls suggest moving U.S. troops from Iraq to Afghanistan. Is that a good idea?

No. Moving some troops from Iraq to Afghanistan may become a good idea in the future, but not yet. The Iraqi government hasn’t learned to walk and we need to teach it. Afghanistan is a very important front on the War on Terror, but we can’t leave Iraq a mess.
