Afghanistan's ruling Taliban movement repulsed two overnight opposition attacks, the Afghan Islamic Press, or AIP, reported. One attack came in northeastern Afghanistan when forces loyal to commander Ahmed Shah Masoud launched an offensive against Taliban positions 19 miles north of the town of Taloqan, AIP said. It said the Taliban repelled the opposition after five hours of fighting in which three Taliban and six opposition fighters were killed.

Key Democrats on Capitol Hill warned Thursday that a decision by President Obama to send more troops to Afghanistan could trigger an uprising within the party, possibly including an attempt to cut off funds for the buildup. "I believe we need to more narrowly focus our efforts and have a much more achievable and targeted policy in that region," said Rep. David R. Obey (D-Wis.), chairman of the House Appropriations Committee. Otherwise, he said, "we run the risk of repeating the mistakes we made in Vietnam and the Russians made in Afghanistan."
