George Kenney: "The Middle East with former CIA analyst David Kanin" @ Electric Politics

Dear Michael,

As a follow-on to last week's show, here's a conversation with a former senior CIA analyst, David Kanin, talking about larger trends in the Middle East and in America. David is a genuinely thoughtful professional who adds a lot to our understanding both of the international environment and how we should conduct ourselves. I think, for example, that given his arguments we desperately need an Office of Policy Planning in the State Department -- the Office currently in existence with that name doesn't do any of the strategic thinking it used to do. But you should decide for yourself!
