News of Afghanistan - Edition 64

This is going to be the last edition for a while. I will be on vacation the next two Fridays and after that I will be making some changes around here. Oooh, cryptic! All that aside, here is the News...

Any talk of tourism in Afghanistan usually centers around Bamyan (or Herat and Kabul).

Afghan Defense Ministry says - huh?

The Taliban hostage Dramatis Personae and the demands

See this and more at Bahktar News

Moving "beyond their Afghan roots"? Even more reason to wipe them out.

NGOs and Afghan security forces - no thank you?

As I previously said - this could be a doozy.

Korean reaction to the hostage situation.

Uh, OK...and this will accomplish what now?

Afghan Blogs vs censorship?

Know Dari or Pashto? Then here is an Afghan online paper for ya!

And the round-up for the day.

The Navy has a tradition of helping their own. Elroy day, a former bubble head has an incredible story to tell. He was blinded in a home invasion in North Carolina in 1995. He recently applied for and was accepted into the Purple Heart Service Foundations job training program to teach him how to become an at home call center agent. Against all odds, working with a disability that would stop most everyone else, he graduated. He completed 600 hours of hard training and now he is reaching out to other blind and vision disabled veterans to tell them about the opportunity that he had. He wants other blind veterans to come and join him. You see, he has a dream of opening a blinded veterans call center. Staffed by former members of the US military who are now blind, for what ever reason. You can help with his dream, just spreading the word. If you know of any veteran who is vision disabled, have them contact Elroy Day immediately . They can email him at
And remember, the Navy has a tradition of helping their own.
