GOOD MORNING AFGHANISTAN - The latest Crusading claim is that our valiant Ronald McDonald warriors of the shopping mall and the SUV have "killed or captured dozens of Taliban."

Yeah, right.

I don't believe a damned word of it.

Not because I have any grounds either to prove or disprove the official news. For all I know, maybe it happened exactly as the Pentagon says it happened. But given this government's penchant for pathological lying, the fact is that we can believe NOTHING the United States government tells us. NOTHING these people say can be taken at face value. If it is not confirmable through some non-American medium, if the U. S. government is the only source for a story, then it is probably false.

How can you tell when Donald Rumsfeld is lying? His lips are moving.
