A Calculated Response

Over the past week a pointed exchange occurred over the blogs. It came about as a result of an article in Wired Magazine by Noah Shachtman.

I found the article used a headline that was designed to hook the reader into believing that two men in uniform were solely responsible for almost losing the war in Iraq. Thomas Barnett, author of the Pentagon's New Map and Blueprint for Action took rightful umbrage at Shachtman. I have linked the best summation of this exchange that was posted by Mark over at:

I completely concur with Mark's summation. For some insight, Tom Barnett's thesis on the need for a plan for the peace after the violent take down of the bad guys, was built on a foundation laid by his mentor, Admiral Cebrowski.
