371. I am not sure about Afghanistan. There seems to be a coordinated effort
to say we should direct out attention toward Al Qaeda, not the Taliban.

We had statements from generals saying not to conflate Taliban and Al Qaeda.

We had a statement from the Taliban saying attacking America is not their agenda, but it might become such if our occupation continues.

We had the Army Chaplains issuing a statement about how our troops in Afghanistan are depressed because the mission there is hopeless.

Etc.
