The killing of Army Gen. Harold J. Green in Afghanistan has broad implications about the future of U.S. involvement there, according to Michael Rubin, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute.

"The very fact of General Greene's rank makes it extremely significant,'' Rubin, who is also senior lecturer at the Naval Postgraduate School, said Wednesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show'' on Newsmax TV.

"The basis of our counter insurgency strategy is to build trust, but every time this happens, despite all the safeguards we put in place, it means that we're not able to establish that rapport and it undercuts the basis of our strategy going forward.

"Momentum means everything and the Taliban have gotten quite a boost to their momentum with this attack.''
