The president is commander-in-chief. He gets to decide who leads the fight in our nation’s war. He is our leader, and he is responsible for securing victory against our nation’s enemies. There are vital U.S. interests at stake in Afghanistan. Failure is a terrible option. Failure will mean a vicious civil war that could lead to genocide in Afghanistan and a resurgent Taliban and Al Qaeda that could prompt a war between India and Pakistan, and ultimately lead right back to another 9/11.

Whomever the president chooses to command our men and women, they must have one qualification that cannot be compromised. They must be committed to victory.
