Afghanistan and the Democratic Party
Referring to President Barack Obama's West Point speech, in December 2009, on policy for the Afghanistan War (2001-), will be keeping a campaign promise but going against widely held beliefs in the U.S. Democratic Party. Nancy Pelosi was one Democrat whom he said had very different opinions in 2006 and today.
Commenting on conservative-turned-progressive David Brock, he said Brock's autobiography, in explaining where he lied for the Right, impugns his credibility. York describes his operation as funded by the usual suspects of the Left, and seeming more like a political campaign than a think tank.
