This is required listening ...

This interview was done yesterday, December 18th -- it runs about 56 minutes, but is worth the time... this is perhaps the first discussion of Iraq I've heard since we went in there that actually makes sense -- even Ente Grillenhaft would approve ... clear, calm, with a sense of context, perspective and reality -- and posits a definite and what might be the ONLY workable solution to the situation there (altho I have serious doubts that Bush and Cheney et al would enjoy it)

This was sent to me from Sweden by a long-time, valued friend, Steve Bennett, a brilliant classical musician (clarinette), who is also an insightful gatherer of non-musical information (I've actually known that for some time.)

Thanks Steve.
