The Left Wing of a Hawk (or a Hawk of the Left Wing)

This guy was a classmate of mine in college -- one of those unassuming, socially kind of wierd, but ferociously intelligent people -- and I've been following his career as a scholar and journalist with some envy. I never bothered to ask why the hell he was taking all those Farsi classes. Well, now he's adjunct scholar at The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, and spent nine months in northern Iraq last year as a Carnegie Council fellow, and a columnist for the The New Republic. And he's one of the few left-wing advocates of US military involvement in Iraq.
