Default Re: Lessons Learned: Decade of Fear (Michelle Shephard & Eli Lake)

Bizarre. Shephard's argument is basically: if the Islamic Courts Union had been appeased, we would never have had the Shabab problem. They brought stability in the midst of corrupt warlords, she argued, so they are no Taliban. Sorry, but that was the Taliban's selling point.
