Right now

""We are not at war," a veteran who served in the Army for eight years told me Wednesday in Maryland. "Only some of us are."

I wasn't initially sure how to feel about that statement. The painful events of the next 48 hours showed that he was on to something.

Beginning at about 10 p.m. eastern on the night of March 30, casualty notices from the Pentagon began filling my inbox. In all, at least six U.S. soldiers, all serving with the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), based out of Kentucky's Fort Campbell, were killed on March 29 in Afghanistan's Konar province. The families of the fallen have been in my thoughts and prayers ever since the e-mails started pouring in.

When I mentioned this last night on The Unknown Soldiers Facebook page, the online community, while universally supportive of our troops and their families, also demanded answers from the national press."

The administration is being distracted by the war in Iraq, I mean Libya....

Does anyone believe our efforts in Afghanistan are worth the sacrifice? Limited wars have no end. Wars in which the enemy is never identified are never won.
