“The Population Is Not The Enemy. The Population Is The Prize.”

Saturday, February 13, 2010  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The New York Times’ Dexter Filkins and C.J. Chivers are reporting from the Marines’ offensive in Marja, Afganistan. A second piece by Filkins, from which the title of this post is drawn, is here. Filkins is an extraordinary journalist, giving our troops and NATO and Afghan forces the coverage they deserve. Spare some time and prayers for these men as they go into a major battle.

If you haven’t read Filkins’ memoir of his years in Iraq, The Forever War, you should.
