    I believe that this is LtCol John Nagl, who was the Operations Officer of 1st of the 34th Armor - 1st INF DIV in Iraq. I personally enjoy the shameless plug for his own book.

    I too did a list a while back for Amazon - it does not contain a shameless plug for my book but it also does not have the name recognition of Col Nagl.

    I saw it. He was very impressive. He made good sense, was understandable and likeable and made a good case for the new strategy.

    I caught it, and thought it went well. His "be prepared to kill" remark wasn't well received (or I think properly interpreted) by the audience. Otherwise good interview, especially the 7.3% remark.

    From a trigger puller perspective I thought this was his best remark.

    "Be polite, be professional, be prepared to kill."

    Great interview and with this venue John may have reached a whole segment of the U.S. population with little understanding of COIN and what it takes to prevail.

    First remember hearing General Mattis saying that, or something very similar.

    I understand that the new COIN doctrine is a major tactical change but if civilians in New York don't see much difference between, "Kill the bad guys," and "Be polite, be professional, be prepared to kill." I wonder if civilians in Baghdad will notice much difference.

    Default Stewart had a much harder time...Colonel, well done !

    What I enjoyed most was how LTC Nagl maintained control over the show, never letting his guard down.
