We Meant Well: How I Helped Lose the Battle for the Hearts and Minds of the Iraqi People by Peter Van Buren

This is somewhat of a different topic for me, but I metPeter Van Buren, the author of We Meant Well,at an Army conference on Afghanistan, where we both were speakers. His book is bothcompelling and controversial, and frankly so is he.

Heres my interview with him, posted yesterday on Fair Observer. Many thanks to Peter for taking the time for the interview, and to the Fair Observer for publishing it.
