Maybe he should read his own newspaper?

Sebastian Mallaby in today's Washington Post writes a column comparing and contrasting facts about the two candidates for President

"Bush smashed the Taliban in Afghanistan, even though large parts of the Democratic foreign policy establishment opposed any strategy involving boots on the ground."

That would be a great point...if it were not a blatant contradiction of facts in the same edition of the Washington Post

Taliban Maintains Grip Rooted in Fear
In Afghan Mountains, U.S. Forces Face Elusive Foe Bent on Disrupting Elections

I am no rocket scientist, but my definition of "smashed" is a little different.

Feel free to read the entire article, but it would be nice if writers would do a little research if they plan on writing an article to 'lay out the facts'.

Just a thought...
