A very interesting piece in last Sunday’s New York Times magazine: A Talib at Yale. Sayed Rahmatullah Hashemi is the former "roving ambassador" for the Taliban, now studying at Yale. An interesting and improbable life story.
The right-wing blogosphere is furious about it. I say it’s better to co-opt moderate former Talibs than to freeze them out.
Besides, his B-grades at Yale are better than George Bush’s "Gentleman’s-C".
