Fantasy vs. Reality

Chilling story in the Washington Post this morning on the lack of free speech in Afghanistan four years after the US invasion and toppling of the Taliban regime. What’s so disturbing is that it’s the type of story I expected to read before we brought down the Taliban.

Additionally, Rodger has a post on the seemingly delusional Senator Mitch McConnell who stated that the transition in Iraq has been “rather smooth”. Rather smooth? Compared to what? The French Revolution??
