No Good News?

I couldn’t find a jot of good news yesterday, aside from the usual sloganeering by generals and ambassadors. Could you? Are good things happening in Afghanistan, or is it all doom?

In Afghanistan, a day without news could be good news, too, you know.

I’m pretty sure that on the 15th, I ate a cookie.
However, on the 21st the T-Ban got the shock of their lives when they attacked a road-construction crew and ended up facing a bunch of ANA, 4 MRAPs, and get this, DISMOUNTED US Infantry!
