News of Afghanistan - The Return V (Edition 61)

I am going to be a bit more "military" in this edition. When I saw this, I felt a bit bad that I had been underreporting what the US/Canada/Britain/ISAF have been doing. So, here we go:

A small victory, but note near the end of the press release. This is what would stop this story from ever getting out into the general news.

Do you have you latest copy of Freedom Watch?

Brits on the attack.

Just can't stay away from Tora Bora!

Mr. Ban's musings.

And in sports: Expat sports meet! I am sure the volleyball is going to be awe inspiring. The Afghans love it and really good at it.

A kidnapping or not?
