Afghanistan’s election on Saturday is looking better. The reports of potential fraud are lessening and it looks like interim President Karzai will win handily. Moreover, the Taliban, in control of the country according to Teresa Heinz (Kerry) was a “no show” according to US Lt. General Barno:

Officials also emphasized that despite dire predictions of attacks at the polls by the Taliban militia and other armed groups, no serious attacks had occurred Saturday. Afghan and international security forces had discovered and successfully thwarted a number of possible bombing plots and other attacks, officials said.

“Yesterday was a huge defeat for the Taliban,” said Lt. Gen. David Barno, commander of U.S. troops in Afghanistan. “The Taliban didn’t show.”

The spread of freedom is a victory for us all.
