Kerry Could Buck Obama on Troop Increase to Afghanistan
By Lois Romano
Senate Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry (D-Ma) is sounding more and more leery about sending additional troops to Afghanistan, per the request of the top U.S. general in the country. In an interview for The Post's Voices of Power video series, Kerry said he is prepared to buck the administration if his fact-finding leads him to conclude that Afghanistan could turn into another Vietnam -- a war in which he served and was decorated, but later protested against. He heads to Afghanistan for a fact-finding visit soon.
