Americans the new Soviets in Afghanistan?

President Obama is expected to start withdrawing troops from Afghanistan as early as next month. Ten years after America began occupancy though, has the country accomplished anything since the September 11 attacks?
What began as a war against al-Qaeda has morphed into a battle with the Taliban which author Jere Van Dyk is calling a quagmire. The short answer, says Van Dyk, is that the US is not winning the war. In that case, he says, the US needs to get out of Afghanistan without handing it over to the Taliban.
