Anthony H. Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies issued a report in December on the U.S. war in Afghanistan, sparing no military kiss-up or diplomatic busybody.
The legion of those who would do nothing in the face of Iran's drive to achieve nuclear weapons capability has another member: Anthony H. Cordesman, a military analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. In an Aug. 31 column, Charles Krauthammer lays out Mr. Cordesman's three-step plan.
Afghanistan's weak government and Pakistan's safe havens for militants continue to hamper progress in the Afghan war strategy, according to a new Pentagon report.

"Progress in creating effective Afghan forces is increasingly questionable, the insurgents are clearly committed to going on with the fight, and relations with Pakistan seem to take two steps backward for every apparent step forward," writes defense analyst Anthony H. Cordesman on the Center for Strategic and International Studies' website.
he said, adding that intensive Pakistani action against militant safe havens is unlikely.
