Ricks on Wanat

Abe and I are in the office marvelling at Tom Ricks on Fareed Zakaria's show.

"Tom's wearing a tie?"

"And I think his hair is combed!"

The helicopter footage at the beginning of this video is intense. I have to be honest, the only time I have been in a firefight even remotely like the one at Wanat lasted less than 10 minutes, so I have no idea what this must have been like for the guys on the ground.
