Coalition soldiers have recaptured both towns taken by the Taliban over the weekend.This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise When the Taliban can hold towns against combined Afghan and coalition forces, than we’llknow the future of Afghanistan is in serious jeopardy. The fact that they have enough operational capability to seize them in the first place is bad enough news.

The Post also notes that the Afghan government is going to try again to reestablish a “Vice and Virtues” ministry, and that Afghani officials accuse Pakistani Islamicists of (sit down, I know this will be a shock) aiding the Taliban.
