Return to “One Tribe at A Time”
It has been a few weeks since we’ve run a post in the “One Tribe At A Time” Series, with Maj. Jim Gant.
We want to share an update with you, about a photo gallery in the Washington Post, featuring narration from Maj. Gant.
Gant: Disciple of an Afghan tribe
U.S. Army Maj. Jim Gant points to his 2003 mission in Afghanistan as proof that the U.S. military can—and should—work alongside tribes in the fight against the insurgency. Here’s a look at the tribe that led him to urge the U.S. military to rethink its strategy.
You’ve already seen some of these images featured on this blog, but this is the first time the images have appeared with audio featuring Maj. Gant.
Glad to have the topic of “One Tribe at a Time” back. Worlds of respect for Jim and others out there making FID and COIN happen through the SOF imperatives, such as “cultural understanding.” Beautiful pictures. I’d love to get back up to N2K someday soon. Thank you both for willingly sharing your experiences (successes and failures) with us. Maybe we can rattle enough birdcages that somebody will let us progress in this fight.
