Here is what I’ve been reading:
Keeping our Promises — the report from CASC on the way forward for Canada after 2011
Ending the Agony — CIGI paper by Chris Alexander
How to end the War in Afghanistan — NYRB essay by David Miliband
The Taliban Insurgency in Afghanistan — from the Norwegian Defense Research Establishment (I’m halfway through, but so far this is *really* interesting).
This book, from Steven Tanner
Finally, my column on the reaction some of our Afghan comrades are having to our lack of national debate on where we’re going after 2011 is up.
