I haven’t had time to write about the Afghanistan assessment as I have spent a lot of time on the subject discussing it on the radio or with reporters. Honestly, there is little that is new or surprising in the assessment [see Tom’s assessment and discussion on the problem with Pakistan here, with which I concur].
Today I appeared on NPR‘s Radio Times with host Marty Moss-Coane and Michael Walid Hanna of the Century Foundation to discuss the Afghanistan assessment, Pakistan, and al Qaeda and the Taliban (a good portion of the discussion focused on the links between al Qaeda and the Taliban, as well as the Pakistan problem).
