Nothing Could Go Wrong With Turning Over the War to a War Criminal
For all this talk of strategic reevaluation of the Afghanistan war, The Washington Times puts forward a possibility that few have considered:
“If you support me, I will destroy the Taliban and al Qaeda,” Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum told The Washington Times in an interview at his northern stronghold. “I don’t want to be a minister, not even the defense minister. I need to be with my soldiers. Give me the task and I will do it.”
There’s also this hilarious bit of color:
Pointing to a laminated picture of Gen. Tommy Franks hanging in his living room, he noted that Gen. Franks, former commander of Centcom, had called him a national hero for his role in helping oust the Taliban.
I do not think that proves the point Dostum wishes to prove.
