Afghanistan: Recommended reading

6 October 2010 15:43

The concern of the Australian media to analyse in depth Tony Abbott's less-than thoughtful remarks justifying his decision not to travel to Afghanistan with the Prime Minister — the ABC devoted nearly ten minutes to the issue on AM alone this morning — contrasts with the overall paucity of hard-nosed writing on Australia's commitment to the country and events in it.

For this reason, Paul Kelly's offering in today's Australian and Ahmid Radshid's gloomy piece in today's FT provided a welcome contrast to so much of Australia's coverage, or lack of it.
