WikiLeaks Exposes Afghan Farce

Pakistan is training Afghan insurgents.  The troops fighting there know how fruitless any victory in Afghanistan will ever be.  Like in Vietnam, they’re fighting over the wastes, know their fighting over wastes, and die fighting over wastes.

I can think of no more patriotic institution, nor a better totem of possibility for the salvation of news media than WikiLeaks.  Time and time again they have lived by their credo to expose the lies that lead America to war, something our own media lost the stones to do decades ago.  That kind of honesty is more than we can expect of our own media outlets.

There’s too much too post, but the New York Times has summarized it nicely.

Or, turn on your TV.  It’s everywhere right now.
