...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

That Other War

Two CIA officers were killed in Afghanistan over the weekend. They were tracking "terrorists" in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Translation: they were tracking groups of Taliban fighters. Yep, they are still there and still active. In fact, they are making it a very dangerous place lately:

More than 350 people, including civilians,
foreign and government soldiers, aid
workers and many rebels have been killed
since August
across Afghanistan.

The violence is the worst since U.S.-led
forces toppled the Taliban from power
late in 2001 for harboring Osama bin Laden
and his al Qaeda network.

Funny. I think it was just...oh, TODAY that the President said this:

And the world is safer today because Saddam
Hussein and the Taliban are gone. We're now
working with many nations to make sure
Afghanistan and Iraq are never again a source
of terror and danger for the rest of the world.

It must be nice to live in such a wonderful and positive world as Mr. Bush must surely live in.

I guess I turned away for a second because I missed when they appointed Ren and Stimpy as the official White House speechwriters: "Happy Happy! Joy Joy!"
