Great article. There is no substitute for actually going to the scene and wearing out shoe leather looking things over and talking to people.
This Emma Sky is an interesting character. A british “Orientalist” who dedicated a decade out of school doing the NGO thing, working towards peace in Israel and the West Bank, she got discouraged and went home to work with the Foreign Office briefly, then headed for Iraq when the war broke out. There she made her legend working with the Coalition Provisional Authority and then became Gen. Odierno’s right hand.
Great article; thanks.
