In the process, I've been zooming through Lt. Col. Jason K. Dempsey's "Our Army", the best book on civil-military relations written in the past decade. Lt. Col. Dempsey sheds light on some recent trends in politicization of the officer corps, and shatters some misconceptions about the non-partisan army.
I was going to spend a few days on the book and my upcoming writing--after all, it's not like anything exciting ever happens in the defense policy world, right?
Then I discovered that Julian Assange of WikiLeaks is poised to release an even larger collection of documents from the Iraq War--some 400,000 of them--as early as Monday. Looks like it's going to be a busy week.

Update: How could I forget? Spencer Ackerman has an inside look at what the new WikiLeaks release might contain.
