Debating Afghanistan Strategy and Politics

I sat in my office this morning, working, and listened to this debate between Josh Foust and Michael Cohen in the background. This is a good smart discussion between two intelligent people about our Afghanistan strategy and policies (and politics) that is worth listening in on. Michael lost me at the end when he started channeling -- by his own admission, I might add -- Curtis LeMay. But overall this is an interesting talk. I think I agree with 90% of what Josh says -- we certainly see eye-to-eye on counter-narcotics -- and have sympathy for at least 70% of what Cohen says.
