Afghan elections were setback for Taliban, Holbrooke says

Last month's presidential and provincial council elections
in Afghanistan were a success for the Afghan people and 'not a good day for the Taliban,' the US special envoy to the country, Richard Holbrooke, said Wednesday in Paris.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how Holbrooke characterizes the outcomes from this "election" in this "democracy" in the coming months.

This alleged "election" may well be a small victory for the US and NATO, having reinstalled their Man in Kabul, Hamid Karzai, but may well prove to be yet another catastrophe for the Afghan people in the long run.
