An Afghan good enough peace treaty

An “Afghan good enough” solution with the Taliban? 

That’s what the United States is negotiating.  According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the Obama Administration is attempting to trade five Afghans at Guantanamo Bay for a “public renunciation of international terrorism” by the Taliban.

“We’re not looking for nirvana,” said a second [Obama] administration official. “We’re pretty sanguine about Afghan ‘good enough.’ That’s the framework” for current strategy discussions, this official said. “That’s why we’re working so hard on reconciliation.”

The Vice President doesn’t think the Taliban is an enemy; there is no “Global War on Terror.”  Apparently an ‘Afghan good enough’ peace treaty is appropriate in this situation.

Does the Afghan good enough strategy include poor air quality, car bombs, and culturally-accepted pedophilia?  Since when did a third-world country ever become the U.S. standard for anything? 

Welcome to the new “normal.”
