Get out before we are all corrupted!
I keep reading that our problem in winning the "smart war," indeed the very smart war, is the corruption of the Afghanistan government. Karzai and his corrupt brother could be ruinous to our pure haven unless we are very very careful.
I think President Obama might take a gander at the NY Times today. Karzai's corruption, like BP's oil, may be hitting our shores. Egad! Say it ain't so! Corruption may be contagious. You decide.
Adam Wheeler apparently tried to think "inside the Harvard box" by faking credentials to get into Harvard. And once there he looked around and said, I gotta get of out of here. So he tried for a Rhodes scholarship. Ah, shame hits academe. Wheeler is not sent to the dean of students, not forced to repent with dunce cap or Glen Beck mask; no sir. Harvard called the cops! Harvard wants the accused to pay $50,000 for all he received. So read "Campuses Ensnared by 'Life of Deception'". Damn that Karzai! Would-be students are sneaking in to steal an education. Don't they realize they might take a chair promised to a legacy?
Then, read "Citing Affair, Republican Gives Up House Seat." Normally we would not comment, but this guy Souder is the right-wing champion of "abstinence" as the answer to our problems. Hard to pass on pure hypocrisy. I'll bet it is Karzai again. I'm sure of it.
Then Dr. George Rekers, an expert on the awful scourge of homosexuality, who is often an expert witness in court, must have made a Faustian bargain with the Karzai-devil. He was caught with a "rent boy." What's that, you ask?
There is even more evidence that Karzai-corruption is creeping in here: "Inspectors Find Fraud At Centers for Children" and "Minerals Management Services had been weakened by corruption." And two New York police officers have been charged with demanding sex with women who would otherwise be arrested. Damn that Karzai! "Crane Owner Guilty of Bribery." What's next?
Message to Obama. Corruption is gaining a foothold. Get out of Afghanistan before Karzai destroys our very successful War on Drugs. Don't laugh. It could happen. Whoa Nelly!
I say, get out!
