George Packer speech from May 2010 on Obama and the Afghanistan War

The UCtelevision (UCTV, from the University of California) channel from You Tube. is a good resource. They present a number of videos of an hour or so length, such as this one, Obama Afghanistan and Vietnam with George Packer of the New Yorker:



This is a talk Packer gave at UC-Santa Barbara, and it's formal title is "An American Dilemma: Obama, Afghanistan and Vietnam". Oddly, it's undated, but it appears to be this event of 05/18/2010.

FEATURED QUOTE

"It is the logic of our times
No subject for immortal verse
That we who lived by honest dreams
Defend the bad against the worse."


-- Cecil Day-Lewis from Where Are The War Poets?
