In my view this is worth a read. It represents the views of one of the most able of our intelligence chiefs in the last 3 decades, General Michael Hayden, (former director of NSA, the CIA and deputy director of National Intelligence) on the administration’s current strategy on Afghanistan/Pakistan. It is a very positive viewing of the President’s strategy and its roll out. It also tracks with others I have talked with who were involved in preparing and implementing the plan.
