Back in Kabul after a particularly harrowing trip out east to the Tora Bora region. I'll post some details later, but for now it's enough to say that nothing went "boom" near me while I was on the road.
Nineteen months (and counting) in-country in Afghanistan, serving as Country Manager for a local (all Afghan) private security company. Although I have some limited military experience, I am not one of those ex-Special Forces guys who gets written up in Rolling Stone. This is a business, not a frat party, and we treat it as such.
