'U.S. official resigns over Afghan war'

Quite a thoughtful piece; interesting in that the official is exactly the 'civil-military hybrid' that is in such short supply:

'Foreign Service officer and former Marine captain says he no longer knows why his nation is fighting.

When Matthew Hoh joined the Foreign Service early this year, he was exactly the kind of smart civil-military hybrid the administration was looking for to help expand its development efforts in Afghanistan.'
