I made an appearance, albeit an erratic one, on OTB Radio at the kind invitation of Dr. James Joyner of Outside the Beltway and the Atlantic Council, where we discussed Afghanistan with his co-host Dave Schuler of The Glittering Eye. It was a good conversation and a fun experience, marred only by a bizarre cascade of tech problems that were entirely on my side of the equation and for which I have to apologize to James and Dave. Ultimately, I may have been on air for 20-25 minutes or so, and at other times, today’s election was discussed.
OTB Radio – Tonight at 5:30 Eastern
The next episode of OTB Radio, our BlogTalkRadio program, will record and air live from 5:30-6:30 Eastern.
Dave Schuler and I will be joined by Zenpundit‘s Mark Safranski to talk about the “elections” in Afghanistan, today’s off-off-year elections in the USA, and the state of opportunity in America.
We’ll also be taking calls at (646) 716-7030. Owing to a high trolls to legit callers ratio, however, we’ll be using the BTR chat feature to screen for legit calls.
Go here to listen to the OTB program.

"If you were in the president’s shoes… what would you do?"Regardless of tech stuff, glad to see you’re getting more visibility and the Pakistan question you posed to both of them was a worthy one that deserved even more discussion, as its perhaps the most important.

Much thanks! Pakistan as the source of the problems ( as opposed to being treated as a messed up ally) is not being discussed enough by the tanks or the blogs. I agree, it is very important and hopeful discussion will begin to accelerate.

Zen, as we say down here Ya dun good! Next time maybe you will get a chance to talk more. Also liked the idea of Pakistan as a problem….more to that then a lot of folks realize.

Gracias Slap! I had a crackberry go dead on the radio signal when it was time for me to call in and then toward the end the modem cut out on the skype phone I had switched to using and had to get that reconnected and call back. I was wondering if lightning was going to hit next. LOL
