Some recommended Afghanistan reading

Tom Friedman has a searing column this morning on the larger failures of our strategy in Afghanistan, and James Fallows and Tom Ricks both think McChrystal should be fired and replaced by James N. Mattis.

As if Tom Friedman has any credibility about the fricking subject...

Friedman hasn't written a searing column about anything since 1989.

Even if we excuse Friedman's past mistakes, I have a real problem with him asserting that Obama's actions in Afghanistan were driven by the fear of Republicans calling him a "wimp". First, I don't believe it but even if I did, how does Friedman know this is what drove Obama. Is Friedman some kind of Presidential mind reader? I stop reading columns when the writer suddenly develops psychic powers which means I avoid the New York Times editorial page.
