FROM Daniel Davis
What's the Real Truth about the War in Afghanistan? On Sunday, the New York Times interviewed Lt. Col. Daniel Davis, who also published an article in the well-regarded Armed Forces Journal . After long experience with military spin doctors and a year in Afghanistan, Davis, who has been praised by superiors for his "devotion to mission accomplishment," reports that the Pentagon is not telling the truth about it calls "progress in Afghanistan." We hear from him and others.
War in Afghanistan: Are Pentagon Officials Telling the Truth? Army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Davis has risked his career by accusing the Pentagon of misleading the public with reports of progress in Afghanistan. After a year of visits to every combat zone — hoping that "rosy official statements" were true, he saw "the absence of success on virtually every level," and reported that the Pentagon is not telling the truth about what it calls "progress in Afghanistan." We speak with Davis and others, including one of the members of Congress whom Davis briefed with classified information. How widely shared is the colonel's conclusion that American soldiers are dying in a war America can't win?

Ex-FBI Director Comey tells his side of the story Today, former FBI Director James Comey came close to calling the President who fired him a liar. The White House denied the claim and called it insulting, but Republican Senators did not challenge Comey’s truthfulness. Many questions remain: did the President try to obstruct a federal investigation? Later, we’ll go behind the “velvet rope” for a look at 5-Star health care for the richest Americans.
The longest US war: Will Trump send more troops to Afghanistan? The Trump White House is divided over the Pentagon's request for more troops in Afghanistan—where the US has been fighting for the past 16 years. Is there a formula -- either for "victory" or a political settlement? Is there an end in sight for America's longest war?
Replacing Obamacare: Now you see it… now you don’t As the Senate deliberates replacing Obmacare, health coverage for millions of people is at stake. There've been no public hearings, and a draft measure won't be made public. Is the House version so unpopular that that Senate is hiding a version that looks much the same?
