VDH BACKS WARLORDS: (Please excuse me for plagarizing Slate.) Victor Davis Hanson's latest column:

Example: "For all the criticism about warlords, it is now likely that Afghanistan will never again be turned over to al Qaeda to train thousands to conduct the type of murder we saw on September 11."
What it means: Al-Qaeda has been eradicated from Afghanistan and they won't come back.
What it hides: Al-Qaeda and the Taliban are launching attacks from their safe-haven in Pakistan. Osama hasn't been caught. We back warlords who oppress Afghans of any other ethnicity than their own.
Subtext: We're winning. Stop spinning.
