    Anyone read this story by Elizabeth Rubin in Sunday Times Magazine. Pretty wild stuff with almost Apocalypse Now quality . It is about Ranger unit stationed in remote Afghanistan outpost.

    Kind of surprised that it has not been more talked about.

    This is an extraordinary piece. Every writer on this board needs to read it.

    I set aside some time to read this a few days after it came out, but somehow missed this thread. Agreed, jg, it is excellent. One particular passage that stuck with me is below, which came right after the quote about Dr. Phil with Guns.

    Extraordinary is right. Just stunned there is not more buzz about this story. I can't imagine that the Army Ranger brass is happy about the story.

    W.C. Heinz meets the Taliban.

    Of course, her material wrote itself.
