U.S. intelligence: 'Time is running out' in Afghanistan

• McClatchy News
 As the U.S. and its allies try to overcome logistical hurdles and rush some 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan in 2010, intelligence officials are warning that the Taliban-led insurgency is expanding and that "time is running out" for the U.S.-led coalition to prove that its strategy can succeed.

The Taliban have created a shadow "government-in-waiting," complete with Cabinet ministers, that could assume power if the U.S.-backed government of Afghan President Hamid Karzai fails, a senior International Security Assistance Force intelligence official said in Kabul, speaking only on the condition of anonymity as a matter of ISAF policy.

 10 years into this bundagle, "US Intelligence" (ever hear of a bigger oxymoron?) realizes that time is running out.  Gotta hand it to these gringos, they're not the biggest super-power in the world just because of its nukes.
