Christiane “Jihad Can’t be Beat” Amanpour and Peter Bergen’s glowing fawning portrayal of a mass murderer is symptiomatic of what’s wrong with modern Journalism. When even the New York Times characterizes your special as an “Al Qaeda Recruitment Video” you should wake up and realize you’ve done something terribly wrong.
Afgha.com is reporting on the new cooperative agreement to partner in patrolling the Pakistani/Afghani border areas, which will apply even more pressure to the Taliban, and Al Qaeda forces there. This along with the earlier summer move of opening the war chest and bringing many of the tribal warlords back aboard presages good to come. I like simultaneous patrols.
