Don't know what this general's political leanings are - but both administrations have not done admirable jobs handling Afghanistan/Iraq. Although there was some improvement in Iraq after 2006 (7?).


Iraq got better after they implemented the 1-2 punch of the surge and the Sunni Awakening stuff. The outgoing Bush/Cheney team drew up a similar plan for Afghanistan and handed it to Obama on their way out the door, but over a year went by before some of the recommendations were put into place, and the rest is history.
