Today at 10:50 am, I will be chatting with Montel Williams on Air America Radio about Afghanistan and the McChrystal Report.
One of the things I may remind Montel of is that during the Republican National Convention when he was off sitting with luminaries like Norman Ornstein, Ron Brownstein, Howard Fineman, and E.J. Dionne, he walked up to me and said “the only man I am jealous of in this room is you.”
Huffington Post‘s Sam Stein did the same to me — though Sam looked far more dangerous when he harrassed me.
And that was because I was sitting next to the fascinating, politically active actress and singer Rosario Dawson — who is pals with Bloomberg’s Tim Burger.
All that aside, I hope to talk through McChrystal’s “Surge Envy” on Afghanistan — and why the track the Obama team is taking is deeply flawed and needs a change of course.
