A bit of crowd-sourcing (or laziness)..... I'm looking for a quote I believe Gen Richard's made about bending the Armed Forces effort to the current threat rather than 'a threat'. It went along the lines of 'would we have supported a young Captain, who in the days after 9/11, asked to learn Dari/Pashto and become an Afghanistan specialist?' I believe it may've been connected to either Op Entirety or regarding strategic thinking. I've tried google, but with literally millions of hits in google (unsurprisingly!) on David Richards and Afghanistan, I'd appreciate any help possible!
