The Bob Edwards Show, Doyle McManus and Thomas Ricks, December 07, 2012 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Doyle McManus and Thomas Ricks, December 07, 2012

Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news. Next, for most of his career, Thomas Ricks has observed generals up close and his new book, The Generals, is a coincidently timely review of six decades of Army leadership. Ricks believes that General David Petraeus’s departure from the CIA tells us more about the state of our nation than it does about Petraeus, and that President Obama should not have accepted his resignation.

Publisher's Summary

Doyle McManus, Washington columnist for the Los Angeles Times, joins Bob to discuss the latest political news.

Next, for most of his career, Thomas Ricks has observed generals up close and his new book, The Generals, is a coincidently timely review of six decades of Army leadership. Ricks believes that General David Petraeus’s departure from the CIA tells us more about the state of our nation than it does about Petraeus, and that President Obama should not have accepted his resignation. Now a fellow at the Center for a New American Security and contributing editor for Foreign Policy magazine, Ricks is a former military correspondent who has shared two Pulitzer Prizes and been a finalist for a third for an earlier book, Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq.

Then, the latest installment of our ongoing series This I Believe. We’ll hear from essayist Tanuj Bansal about the stresses and joys of family visits during the holidays. [Broadcast Date: December 7, 2012]
