“When you’re talking about a country which has an 85 percent rate of illiteracy, which has virtually no history of modern governance, you should go in with an overwhelming dose of humility,” he told me. “And you’d better damn well have as precise a notion as you can of what your objective is.”

The speaker?
Vice President Joe Biden in an interview with The New York Times Magazine.

The country?
Afghanistan.

Very interesting read (if long).
