"But being right, even morally right, isn't everything. It is also important to be competent, to be consistent, and to be knowledgeable. It's important for your soldiers and diplomats to speak the language of the people you want to influence. It's important to understand the ethnic and tribal divisions of the place you hope to assist."

Add this blog to your regular reference list! Greta spoke in my Research and Writing class today. Greta is "the Outreach and Collection Development Manager and a reference librarian at the Naval Postgraduate School's Dudley Knox Library as well as the content manager for the Homeland Security Digital Library (HSDL)."
She was excellent and walked us through the resources available through the NPS library to conduct our research. She also maintains a blog where she aggregates reports and articles pertinent to anyone interested in foreign and national security affairs. It's well worth your time to browse through each day.
