|The NY Times recognizes the obvious, finally: it's time to get out of Afghanistan, just as soon as safely possible for the troops - 6 months.

Bush's disastrous indifference, it is time for United States forces to leave Afghanistan on a schedule dictated only by the security of the troops. It should not take more than a year. The United States will not achieve even President Obama's narrowing goals, and prolonging the war will only do more harm. "
