Afghan wind-down suggested reading list – not good

Updated May 16, 2014

An item in today’s Washington Post by Rajiv Chandrasekaran refreshes our thoughts on the fraught Afghan scene. On these rainy/snowy days such as we are having today, a good idea is to  read these recent volumes to reset one’s perspective on the Afghan and Iraq ventures. Short reviews and the points I see in them. At the link:

Recent release, “The Wrong Enemy” by Carlotta Gaul  sheds a bright (if unwelcome in some circles) light on the doomed American adventure in Afghanistan and the dark role “ally”  Pakistan has played in the debacle.

Peter Bergen on the Hunt for OBL – looking fwd to this at noon

I am signed on to join this event tomorrow. Stay tuned and I’ll blog here afterwards.

Did 2007 Bush administration leak drag this out another 4 years? SITE Intelligence Group developed a hot link to OBL and revealed it to TWO HIGH BUSH OFFICIALS—within a few hours it was all over DC and the media. Blatant and oh-so covered up by neocons.
