Bob Woodward’s book Obama’s War says by the end of the 2009 strategy review, Obama concluded that no Afghan mission could be successful without attacking the Al Qaeda and Afghan Taliban havens operating with impunity in Pakistan.

“We need to make clear to people that the cancer is in Pakistan,” Obama is quoted as saying at an Oval Office meeting on November 25, 2009. Creating a more secure Afghanistan is imperative, the president said, “so the cancer doesn't spread” there.
