Rumsfeld declares the bulk of the country secure:
over a year after Bush declared victory in Afghanistan, meanwhile the US gags UN criticism of US support for Afghan warlords - which have been on a "loot and murder spree", Afghanistan has about 50,000 police officers in Afghanistan, but most are paramilitaries loyal to regional warlords - and Human Rights Watch reports that Karzai's government is delivering death-threats to the press and arresting journalists. To quote Bush today, "the enemies of freedom are not idle".
Another repressive state security apparatus curtesy the US government and the GOP.
Plus: "terrorist" incidents
"drop"... in Columbia.
