Re: H-Diplo|RJISSF Roundtable Review 14-9 on Malkasian, "The American War in Afghanistan" and Whitlock, "The Afghanistan Papers"

In response to Conrad Crane's argument that moral judgments of a policy should be based more on intentions than on outcomes, and that we need a standard of right and wrong that can be applied beforehand, I would suggest that even intentions may be clearer in hindsight than they were at the time decisions were made. If people try really hard to make their actions consistent with their good intentions, and fail, we should give them moral credit.
