by Patrick Appel
Marc talks with Col. Peter Mansoor about Obama, Petraeus, and Afghanistan:
My question is more funfdamental than that; even if you're able to work counterinsurgency with the Pakistani army, are the Pashtun's people amenable to a political solution to their grievances in the current state structure that exists in southwest Asia? I don't know the answer to that question.
