Those helos became a major issue earlier this week, when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said U.S. officials are pressing Russia to shut down shipments of Rosoboronexport helicopters to Syria's military for use against rebel fighters and civilians. Human rights activists say the Russian choppers aid in "crimes against humanity." Pentagon spokesmen then spent several days casting the Syrian shipments and Afghanistan transactions as totally separate matters.

Regardless of the wisdom along other lines, I can answer the concern above. They are totally separate matters. Not sure why it took several days on that one. About 5 minutes, followed by "do you have any serious questions?"
