If you like liberal Los Angeles Times columnist Rosa Brooks’ material, you’re out of luck: via Mike Calderone, she’s on her way out of journalism to advise Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Michele Flournoy, though not before advocating a government bailout for the industry. It won’t be her first government job: she used to advise Harold Koh at the State Department during the Clinton administration, when Koh was assistant secretary for human rights and not the subject of a cynical smear campaign. For my part, check out this February column on Af-Pak, in which she agonizes over what can possibly be done in Afghanistan and comes down cautiously in favor of several of the strategic concepts that the Obama administration eventually embraced. It seems to capture the mood among progressives who’ve endorsed the Obama Af-Pak strategy pretty well.
