CIVILIAN, MILITARY PLANNERS HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS ON NEW APPROACH TO AFGHANISTAN
Washington Post article on the implementation of Obama’s strategy for Afghanistan, which it says is being interpreted differently by civilian and military personnel. If true, it reads like a recipe for disaster. The problem is that the US military has a long tradition of ignoring the civilian politicians…and of maverick generals. Worth pinning on the wall and rereading over the next two years as matters develop.
