"We are living in an interminable succession of absurdities imposed by the myopic logic of short-term thinking."—Jacques-Yves Cousteau

Another person the CIA should be helping and who, if here, the Christian Coalition would tell to shut up
The Afghan Women’s Association fights for women's rights in Afghanistan. Only very brave women would face the Taliban punishments for such actions. Does the CIA have women agents who can help the cause of women like Farah Naz Nazier who dare to stand up to these fanatical bigots and bullies? Are we dropping pamphlets intended for women - assuming some of them can read. Are we explaining to the women of Afghanistan that we are dropping bombs to help rid them of their oppressors? In a post Taliban Afghanistan, we need to make damn sure that groups like these are funded, educated, and supported.
