The Daily Beast started showing up on in my inbox, along with many others, and I look at it once in awhile. It seems to have some good stuff – but this article hit me right between the eyeballs.

This article also shows the moxie of the alternative media compared to the establishment kind. Here is the author’s bio:
Bruce Riedel, a former longtime CIA officer, is a senior fellow in the Saban Center at the Brookings Institution. At President Obama’s request, he chaired the strategic review of policy toward Afghanistan and Pakistan in 2009. He is author of the book Deadly Embrace: Pakistan, America and the Future of the Global Jihad and The Search for Al Qaeda: Its Leadership, Ideology and Future.
