Good news from Afghanistan?

As the situation has improved in Iraq, there have been worries that the situation in Afghanistan is worsening. It’s even harder to know what’s going on in Afghanistan than Iraq, since Afghanistan faces the same neglect from the media, but doesn’t have the interest from independents that Iraq has. We’re mostly left with official reports from the military. So, for what it’s worth, it’s nice to hear that the commander of British forces in Afghanistan says the Taliban insurgency is at the “brink of defeat.” (Via the Corner.)
