I don’t care if this interview between Bill Moyers and Oliver Stone is 20 months old. It’s the most nourishing and sobering thing that’s seeped into my head all day. It’s basically Stone talking about his time as an infantryman in Vietnam, and how that experience has informed his views of the current debacle in Afghanistan, and convinced him that Obama has made a terrible mistake by trying to go for some kind of win over there, which of course is futile.

Forget segment #1 — start with segment #2 and then watch segment #3, segment #4 and segment #5.
