In which Mr Foust takes the ASG to task
In which Mr Foust takes the ASG to task. Well worth a read.
I find it interesting this has been portrayed as brutal. By Australian standards, it’s pretty gentle.
By way of example, consider this excerpt from an article that featured in the preeminent broadsheet here in Oz, The Australian.
It begins with this:
PROFESSOR Hugh White of the Australian National University has done something remarkable. He has written the single, stupidest strategic document ever prepared in Australian history by someone who once held a position of some responsibility in our system (White was once deputy secretary of the Defence Department).
The author of this piece is Greg Sheridan, a senior journalist/scholar, who is the Foreign Editor at said newspaper.
