  3. wow three great interviews scott

  4. One of the most insightful things I’ve read about counterinsurgency lately: Just because there is a coin strategy, doesn’t mean it’s smart for the U.S. to do it.

    As for the Awakening Councils, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Good interview. Dahr Jamail does great reporting.

  5. Another interesting interview.
    Great job Dahr and Scott
