Afghanistan’s serious questions (Part 3)
US Army Colonel Lawrence Sellin gets the sack from his staff job at Kabul Nato/Isaf headquarters.
Since my last installment focused on the failure of US command leadership in running America’s longest ever war, I couldn’t help but follow up with a small but important sign of hope that some senior military officers get it.
Little surprise.  It must have been an awkward ‘morning after’ once UPI sent it to press.
Note:  One secret admirer of Col. Sellin’s article may be US Defense Secretary Robert Gates, whose convictions to drastically cut the amount of senior US officers
kicked off yet another insurgency for him to deal with. Secretary Gates might instead consider putting Colonel Sellin in charge of his top-officer reduction project.  Clearly this is one senior officer who values principal over his next promotion.
