The Hezbollah Model Revisited

Following up on my previous post, here's a piece I co-authored with Mara Karlin that appeared in the Washington Times today.

The Hezbollah Model in Afghanistan?

Over at the MESH blog, Matt Levitt has an excellent post on a recent report in the Washington Post that "[s]ome inside the White House have cited Hezbollah, the armed Lebanese political movement, as an example of what the Taliban could become."

Make sure you read Levitt's post, and then check out my own comment there.
