Noah Shachtman, editor of WIRED magazine’s Danger Room blog, discusses the doubling of air strikes in Afghanistan this year; wartime images that more often come from a soldier’s YouTube video than from the media; how Gen. McChrystal took Gen. Petraeus’s COIN doctrine far more seriously than Petraeus himself did; and why Obama’s July 2011 Afghanistan withdrawal date is a total fiction – nothing more than a talking point.

MP3 here. (10:32)

Noah Shachtman is a contributing editor at WIRED magazine, a non-resident fellow at the Brookings Institution, and the editor of the Danger Room blog.

  2. The Taliban had nothing to do with 9/11. There´s no evidence that they knew it was coming. But they were guests of honor in Texas. They couldn´t agree on The Trans-Afghan Pipeline. Now they have built some 400 Kms of the pipeline. By the way, can copters land on the roof of the US Embassy in Kabul ?

  3. But Petreaus is out before the end of the year. What's up next?

  4. Whatever happened to govt in a box? That's one of my faves in the Afghan war so far.
