Greetings to TWN readers. I apologize for being a bit AWOL in last few days as I’ve been absorbing a flood of information on President Obama’s Afghanistan-Pakistan strategy and very involved in some of the back end efforts trying to affect the agenda of the G-20 Summit in London. SDRs have been high on that agenda.
I will soon have some “think pieces” up that move beyond the quick hit reactions that I see abounding in the media and blogosphere. I think that serious observers need to take a step back and do a more serious job sorting through the strengths and weaknesses of President Obama’s recent economic policy moves and his national security course.
But for those who are awake, I will be talking about some of this — particularly General David Petraeus’ comments during hearings today about a troop increase request, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Israel, and more — tomorrow morning with anchor Robb Harleston on C-Span’s Washington Journal.
My segment will start at about 7:30 am EST.
