This morning, during the Sky News broadcast of Sunday Live, Christopher Hitchens made what must be quote of the day. It was uttered in response to the assertion made by a member of the audience that the Taliban might have welcolmed the invasion and handed over Bin Laden if they had known a restructure of Afghanistan was on offer.
“The suggestion… has some way to go before it could be considered naiive” opined the great ‘Hitch’.

Well, something told me that I wasn’t not the only one catching my breakfast cereals in my throat this morning listening to Hitch. Great fun – even if the remark from the audience makes you worry a bit about the current zeitgeist when it comes to understanding the Taliban and their love for restructuring things = education and democracy.
