In this time of amusing year-end top 10 lists, a decidely unamusing, but perhaps more important, one: "Top 10 Myths About Afghanistan," pulling together the bad news for the U.S. war effort, about local support, the probity of the government we are fighting and killing to support, and the cause for which we are allegedly fighting at this point. (It isn't to stop al Qaeda or as a front in our next war on Iran.) Not sure that all these "myths" are that widely believed, but it's a good one-stop shop to contemplate the pointlessness of the ongoing, and ongoing, and ongoing, U.S. war over there.
