The Great Myth: Counterinsurgency

By Conn Hallinan

The Afghan Taliban have never been a threat to the West, and the idea that fighting the Taliban would reduce the threat of terrorism is "complete rubbish." In any case, the al-Qaeda operatives who pulled off the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon got their training in Hamburg and south Florida, not Tora Bora.

Here Be Dragons: In Bed With the US Army

Ann Jones, TomDispatch: "In the eight years I've reported on Afghanistan, I've 'embedded' regularly with Afghan civilians, especially women. Recently, however, with American troops 'surging' and journalists getting into the swing of the military's counterinsurgency 'strategy' (better known by its acronym, COIN), I decided to get with the program as well. Last June, I filed a request to embed with the U.S. Army."
