POST MOVES KABUL REPORTER: In a disasterous move, the Washington Post has moved its only reporter in Afghanistan from Kabul to Baghdad. Her latest report from Afghanistan, on the ratification of the Constitution, was featured on the front page. Her articles from Baghdad, three until today, were buried on page 12.

In addition to this debacle (you heard me), the Post will lose Peter Behr, John Berry, William Raspberry and Henry Allen, all top-natch guys. The Post is starting the year bad and is losing its institutional memory.

(Does that mean the Times might stand a chance? Nah. Let's see Judy Miller match this!)
