Much earlier today, four young Afghan men walked unhindered into the most secure building in Kabul -- the Serena hotel, a favourite haunt of foreigners and the Afghan in-crowd who like to associate with them. The young men -- part of the Taliban -- shot four of the former and five of the latter, nine in all. Another "mission accomplished".
Walt thinks today is a good day to remember a sermon given by President Hussein Obama's pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
You might not have seen this before. Tapes of the speech (from which this video is clipped) were on sale at his Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, before and during the election of 2008. When it surfaced, and the import of it was understood, the lamestream media deep-sixed it. Only Rolling Stone gave much play to the Rev's utterances. And John McCain -- decent John McCain -- accepted Obama's "repudiation" of Mr. Wright at face value and told his people to stop making a big fuss about the preacher's rhetoric.
You know what, though? With every passing month, every passing day, Reverend Wright's denunciation or America's "war on terrorism" sounds... well... right on. Terrorism begets terrorism! The chickens are coming home to roost!
