This morning (12:02 AM) the BBC sez our brave forces have captured teh Taliman second in command who…favors a negotiated end to the …uh, our war.
Oh – and he was picked up in Pakistan – not Afghanistan. No worries: still plenty of compounds full of Afghan kids for our drones to blow up on the road to winning hearts and minds.
Glad we’ve defeated the Taliban again, aren’t you? And Xe, and…?
Oh – now that we read this has been under wraps for a week, we can trust all the other Pentagon/NYT stories – right?
