More great input from Andrew Bacevich.

I love Prof. Andrew Bacevich and his reasoned historical analysis based approach of US FP in the Middle East and in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

(Bacevich is an ex army colonel, history professor at BU, author most recently of The Limits of American Power: The End of American Exceptionalism.)

He was on the News Hour tonight with John Nagl, COIN guru, also an ex colonel, head of CNAS (Center for a New American Security.)

In my opinion, Bacevich and Steve Coll (New Yorker, author of Ghost Wars: The Secret History of the CIA, Afghanistan, and Bin Laden, from the Soviet Invasion to September 10, 2001, among others) really need to be running the US' program in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
