Video blogging: middle east crisis

July 12, 2006

My commentary on the unfolding Israeli-Hezbollah crisis. This is a bit rough and a bit long.

One of the problems with doing this without a script is that it can be easier to make factual errors. For example, I mention Israeli military capacity in the 1970s even though the invasion of southern Lebanon dates to 1982.

UPDATE: my wife is already on my case about moving around too much and about speaking more slowly. I’ll correct these problems in the next installment.
