If You Only Read One Online Chat About Afghanistan
*Please *make it this wonderful FireDogLake exchange between Rand’s Seth Jones — author of a new book tracing how the Afghanistan war became a fiasco — Registan‘s Josh Foust, and the FDL readership. (Full disclosure: FDL hosts my personal blog and I suggested Josh host the chat.) These are very knowledgeable people talking about an extremely dense topic in an excellent, engaging way, and not waving off difficult or fundamental questions from a concerned and smart readership. Just excellent, all around.
