Default Re: Obama's Afghanistan Speech (Heather Hurlburt & Eli Lake)

I always feel bad for Eli in these diavlogs. I know Heather is smart, but there is something too didactic about her rhetoric (mixed with a not inconsiderable amount of political spin) that almost seems to deny the existence of uncertainty. Too many forcefully loud "But the fact is, Eli," type openings that don't always dovetail into facts that are very important. I don't agree with Mr. Lake on all of the politics, but I appreciate that he is a guy who is conscious about the difficulties of making sense of these issues.
