Here is something well worth your time if you're interested in hearing a perspective on US policy in Afghanistan, and the general problem of global terrorism, that's well outside the conventional wisdom range of "35 or 40 thousand troops, and now or next week?" Yes, you have to put up with David Frum, but it's worth it, to hear what Andrew Bacevich has to say.
If I could be granted a wish, it would be that Andrew would be able to sit down alone with President Obama for a few hours.
(If you'd rather not sit here and stream this, visit the "alt. video link" to download an audio or video file of the above.)
You may also wish to listen to Andrew's last Bh.tv diavlog, posted this past January, in which he discusses his latest book. That one has the extra attraction of his being paired with Heather Hurlburt.
