AFGHAN DRUG LORD BUSTED IN U.S.

For those of us who have winced while understanding the rationale behind our military's policy of mostly looking the other way regarding Afghanistan's poppy harvest, here is a ray of hope. The BBC reports that Bashir Noorazi, an Afghan drug lord and Taliban supporter, was arrested here in the U.S. I'm sure someone will take his place, but getting this guy at least sours his current schemes, whether importing drugs or financing terror. Funny, I didn't catch this one on any U.S. news outlets, including FOX. That's why I post these things here; so you, my friends, will get all this kind of news!

Update: I saw it reported more widely the day after I posted this, but not as prominently as it should have been.
