I heard a researcher from the Counterterrorism Blog on the radio this morning talking about Afghanistan. Apparently the Taliban fighters are conducting their own "surge" there. He also discussed the continued lack of freedom and human rights in the post-Taliban Afghanistan -- in particular he mentioned a journalist who was sentenced to death for circulating a flyer asking why women couldn't have multiple husbands under Islam. I think he was talking about Sayed Parwez Kaambakhsh. That's something you'd expect to hear coming out of Iran or Saudi Arabia, but supposedly we "liberated" Afghanistan. It's hard not to wonder what we actually accomplished over there.
