More Bad News from Afghanistan

Last week we posted a link to a NYT article with some promising public opinion data from Afghans on the state of affairs within their country. Unfortunately, there’s some depressing results emerging too. As David Ignatius profiles, research from the International Council on Security and Development states:

The numbers show that Afghans remain wary, even as U.S. troops pound the Taliban: 50 percent of those polled in October think recent military operations are bad for the Afghan people; 58 percent think it’s wrong to work with foreign forces; 55 percent oppose military operations against the Taliban in their area; 72 percent say that foreigners disrespect their religion.
