TNY Close Read, a.k.a Amy Davidson, says: “I’ll be chatting live today at 3 P.M. (very soon!) about my Comment this week on Afghanistan and WikiLeaks, and about any other subject that comes up—the Revis holdout, the Clinton wedding, or, most maddeningly, the Anti-Defamation League losing its way.”
An excerpt from Amy Davidson’s Comment on WikiLeaks and the war:
"But perhaps the leaked documents will persuade us to challenge that sense of resignation. We could reëxamine other proposals, like the one for a pared-down campaign narrowly focussed on hunting Al Qaeda—a plan that McChrystal’s leaked report helped quash. We might even decide, nine years after our arrival, that it is time to leave Afghanistan."
