Security experts say National Security Agency information leaker Edward Snowden doesn't know what he's talking about when he claims that no one could force him to reveal what he knows. Not even a torture expert.
In a recent Washington Post story about the resurgence of the Taliban in Afghanistan with an attack on Camp Bastion in Helmand province, defense analyst Joshua Foust commented that the Taliban are fighting politically while the American generals are fighting tactically. That is one of the main points made by Thomas Ricks in his new book, "The Generals," a scathing critique of modern general officer leadership.
Western nations preparing to withdraw from combat in Afghanistan increasingly are alarmed by Afghan security forces turning their weapons on allied troops, attacks that the Taliban claim as proof of their sway over local troops.
The United States on Monday stood by its hands-off policy toward Iraq after more than 100 Iraqis died in a wave of 37 coordinated terrorist attacks across the country — the most intense assault since American forces left seven months ago.
A militant group responsible for the deaths of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan has rejoined peace talks with President Hamid Karzai's government, and four other factions followed after Afghan security forces crushed an attack by terrorists in Kabul earlier this week.
The United States faces many dangers in the Middle East with the eventual departure of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Washington analysts said Thursday, as chaos swept the streets of Cairo in a second week of massive demonstrations.

Joshua Foust, a fellow at the American Security Project, said the Afghan National Security Forces' performance is probably the biggest source of frustration for Afghanistan's allies.
