Afghanistan And The Price The Military Has Paid: Jake Tapper’s The Outpost
Afghanistan is lurching towards the return of civil war as the president prepares to withdraw most American troops from the country by mid-2014, and those that might have done much to prevent either the former or the latter are now being consumed in scandal, whether fairly or unfairly.
In the middle of the controversies arrives a remarkable book by ABC’s Jake Tapper, The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor. I will devote most of today’s program to a discussion of the book and Afghanistan with Tapper and urge you not to miss it. And get the book, for every veteran you know and for anyone who has an opinion on the war there, for it is certain to change at least in part upon reading it.
