Evangelizing Them Out Of Their Holes

Updated on Jun 23, 2009 at 21:01 by Registered CommenterMike Innes

I've been giving some more thought recently to framing and the problem of militant sanctuary. It's the end of a long day right now, so I'll save the longer version for another time.

It Wasn't The Plan, It Was The Implementation...

SHAIKH SHAHZAID CAMP, Pakistan -- U.S. envoy Richard C. Holbrooke, red-faced and sweaty, sat on the dirt floor of a stifling tent as Aslam Khan, a 38-year-old laborer, spoke haltingly of his family's panicked flight from a Pakistani army offensive against Taliban forces in their mountain village, three hours north of here.
