Martha Coakley opposes, and Scott Brown supports, the surge in Afghanistan. During tonight's debate, Coakley asserted that terrorists are no longer in Afghanistan--they've apparently all made their way to Yemen and Pakistan.

The Brown campaign sends out the clip and the transcipt:

MODERATOR: “Do you think we should withdraw? [from Afghanistan]”



COAKLEY: “I think we should plan an exit strategy, yes.”



MODERATOR: “And how would we succeed?”



COAKLEY: “I am not sure there is a way to succeed. If the goal was and the vision in Afghanistan was to go in because we believe the Taliban was giving harbor to terrorists, we supported that, I supported that goal. They are gone, they are not there anymore, they are in apparently Yemen and Pakistan. Let’s focus our efforts on where Al Qaeda is.”
