I think it has been masterful to keep this down and not open fronts with Iran and Syria. Meanwhile we have recruited and trained indigenous forces. Ledeen is a little too smart for his own good, imho. C-span has been playing up a ex CIA dissenter this week griping about how the White House censored a NYT op-ed by Flynt ___ asserting the grand bargain with Iran strategy.
