As the 10th anniversary of the start of the Afghan war is marked around the world, looking forward is more important than looking back. As I noted in an earlier post, staggering mistakes have been made over the last decade. While individual Americans and Afghans have performed heroically, the Afghan and American governments ā€“ particularly their civilian arms ā€“ have performed anemically. And Pakistanā€™s intelligence service – the ISI – is the single largest impediment to stability in the region.
