U.S. News & World Report’s cover story is worth reading. It is called "Hunting bin Laden: Where the World’s Most Wanted Man is Hiding and Why He’s so Hard to Get." Good read. It explains both how hard this work is, and how we seem to be doing it right; although there is no guarantee of success. Note the so called "nuanced approach to counterinsurgency" operations. This is both right and necessary. This Lt. Gen David Barno seems to be a good guy. There are two more related stories on Afghanistan in the same issue, go here and here. Good portrayals of special forces; also note the importance of Pakistan in all this.
