While all good questions to ask the Intelligence Community about AFPAK, I would consider also asking for an assessment of the viability of the governments of Afghanistan and Pakistan. If we are to commit ourselves to this area, we should want to know if we will be allied with govts both sympathetic to our efforts, but also seen as legitimate by their populations. It would be embarrassing to continue in this region, only to see the people side with the taliban, for any number of reasons, rather than cutting our losses early and not pursue what history may brand a fools errand.
