In the decade after 9/11, just how much did the U.S. military have to recalibrate to fight the wars it found itself launching in Afghanistan and, 18 months later, in Iraq? This week, on Command Post, we discuss the retooling of the American armed forces with Eric Schmitt of the New York Times — co-author of Counterstrike: The Untold Story of America’s Secret Campaign Against al Qaeda — and Margaret Harrell, a military manpower expert with the Center for a New American Security. I’m joined, as usual, by CNAS president John Nagl.
