"Hopefully I've painted an optimistic picture, because it is; but it's certainly not easy." Col. Michael McMahon

Col. Michael J. McMahon, Director of Force Integration and Training (CJ7) for the Combined Security Transition Command Afghanistan joined us for the second DoD Bloggers Roundtable of the day. Col. McMahon spoke to us about building the Afghan National Army and Police, Force District Development, the Afghan National Civil Order Police, and the successes and challenges of helping Afghanistan stand on its own.

On the call with us today was Andrew Lubin of the Military Observer, Bruce McQuain of QandO and Jarred Fishman of the Air Force Pundit.
