"It's a very complex country. It's a country that has a literacy rate of about 20 percent. That's why the education of the children over there is so important.

They have been fighting wars for 30 years, instead of educating their children. We have got to make sure that we don't leave Afghanistan as a country that is a safe haven for terrorists who get up every morning and train in ways that they intend to kill and harm Americans domestically, as they did on Sept. 11, or in some other way.

So, it's very complex. And that's why you need people like Crocker and Petraeus and others on the ground observing what's going on, so that they can give the president, as well as the policy-makers, the absolute best advice."
