McKiernan as ISAF Roadkill

If you’re wondering how to say, “scathing,” in blog-ese, look no further: The Security Crank, at his cranky best, counts the ways in which former ISAF commander Gen. David McKiernan got majorly shafted. (And believe me, there are more than you probably realize.)

All of which reminds me of the one-year window of opportunity often referred to last July to turn things around in Afghanistan. Six months later, the information ops campaign, at least, seems to be on track to deliver.
