One of the leading citizen journalists in the world, Michael Yon, returned to Pundit Review Radio once again for a live 30-minute report from the front lines. Michael just returned to Afghanistan from Iraq and he gave us updates on both fronts in the war.

A former Green Beret, Michael has built his reputation by delivering the news as he sees it, the good, the bad and the ugly. Michael has been consistently pessimistic about our prospects in Afghanistan, dating back at least to this August 14, 2006 interview.

Tonight, I was joined by Bruce McQuain from QandO. Together we asked Michael about his recent trip to Iraq in which he declared flatly that the war is over, and we won. We also asked about the challenges in Afghanistan, the differences between Iraq and Afghanistan, the shortcoming of our strategy, the impact of the Afghan winter on military operations and the morale of the troops.

Michael is a truly independent journalist, fully supported by his readers. If you appreciate this kind of independent, trustworthy reporting from the world’s hot spots, you can support Michael via Pay Pal at his website or by sending a check to,
