Kerry on Afghanistan: "Test every assumption and examine every option."

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman is sounding ever-more skeptical about a big escalation in Afghanistan. I do wonder a little why, as SFRC chair, he didn't start asking the questions and testing the assumptions for the past eight months. (Maybe he would say the tainted election changed everything.) Regardless, keep an eye on Kerry. I'd be surprised to see him take a position at odds with whatever Obama does, but it's possible.
