The Best Defense

Tick talk

Rightist raptor Tom Donnelly provides a painful chronology of President Obama's deliberations on Afghanistan. I remain an Obama fan, but his handling of this has done more to make me question my support than anything else he has done.

The Best Defense

Me and Fareed

I forgot to mention that I was on Fareed Zakaria's Sunday CNN show the other day to discuss what happened at Wanat, the small battle in the summer of 2008 that strikes me as representative of the war.

Zakaria struck me as one of the smartest people I've ever met. Long-time readers of this blog may remember that I think he did the best foreign affairs interview I've ever seen with Obama, back when Obama was running for president.
