Anthony H. Cordesman of the Center for Strategic and International Studies issued a report in December on the U.S. war in Afghanistan, sparing no military kiss-up or diplomatic busybody.
The legion of those who would do nothing in the face of Iran's drive to achieve nuclear weapons capability has another member: Anthony H.
