Bears Repeating

Frank Rich in today's NYT: "And they [Americans] are starting to focus on the morbid reality, highlighted in the [Wikileak] logs, of the de facto money-laundering scheme that siphons Americans' taxpayer money through the Pakistan government to the Taliban, who then disperse it to kill Americans."
Indian cartoonist Ajit Ninan knew this more than five years ago (more like a decade), but so brainwashed are Americans by the standard "India-Pakistan rivalry" phrase that is put in each news-story that until now, they have refused to see the truth, and have dismissed all this as Indian propaganda.
