Interesting Times: National Security in the Last Decade

Monday, December 28, 2009

When it comes to national security, were the past 10 years the best of times or the worst of times? George Packer, staff writer for the New Yorker and author of the new book "Interesting Times: Writings from a Turbulent Decade," shares his opinions on how history will record the first decade of the 21st century. It's the first segment in our week-long series looking back at the big issues of the past 10 years.

NB: George Packer isn't channeling Dickens, his title comes from an old chinese curse --- May you live in interesting times.

Always enjoy hearing from Mr. Packer.
