Antiwar Radio: Kelley B. Vlahos

Kelley B. Vlahos, featured columnist and contributing editor for The American Conservative magazine, discusses the periodic, ritualistic exercise of claiming progress in the Afghanistan War, wherein US generals tell bland lies to Congress and nobody asks follow-up questions; the 300,000+ member Afghan army that is always right around the corner from competency; the end of patriotic breast-beating pro-war fervor in the military and government; and why congressional staffers would more ably question the war effort than the stuffed shirt Representatives who just want camera face-time.
