UPDATE: WordPress Is Weird: Apparently when a scheduled post doesn’t, for some reason, get published, it just sits there, apparently forever. I just discovered a whole bunch of them – this one was originally scheduled for November 26, 2013. The blog itself isn’t that startling – but I liked the title I put on the piece.
KABUL – Death by stoning for convicted adulterers is being written into Afghan law, a senior official said on Monday, the latest sign that human rights won at great cost since the Taliban were ousted in 2001 are rolling back as foreign troops withdraw.
Yep, that Bush “bring democracy to the benighted Muslim savages” thing is working out so very well, isn’t it?
