WASHINGTON, Sept. 3, 2009 -- Newswire services today reported that "the United States has limited time to show that President Barack Obama's new strategy for Afghanistan is succeeding," according to the French news agency AFP.
"There is a limited time for us to show that this is working," Gates said at a press conference today alongside Admiral Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
"We are mindful of that, we understand the concerns of many Americans in that area, but we think that we now have the resources and the right approach to start making some headway," he said, AFP reported.
