Stephen Biddle, a Senior Fellow for Defense Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations, has recently returned from Kabul where he helped McChrystal with the assessment. He tells Jim Zirin we must surge a minimum of 10,000-40,000 American troops and double the existing Afghan force. But this, he says, will involve a commitment of 10 to 15 years with fatality rates if 50 per month. Should we go for this? Is it better to take some middle ground? Or is the best course just to cut and run?
