I must have missed something. Didn't Dubya tell us we were invading and occupying Afghanistan and Iran to bring them freedom and democracy ?
The New York Times today reports an Afghan court sentenced a journalism student to death for blasphemy for distributing an article from the Internet that was considered an insult to the Prophet Muhammad.
Sayed Parwiz Kambakhsh, 23, is a student at the faculty of journalism in Mazar-i-Sharif and also works for a daily paper, Jahan-e-Naw, as a reporter.
He was accused of downloading a controversial article and adding some of his own paragraphs about the ignorance of the Prophet Muhammad on women’s rights.
The case follows two previous incidents of journalists being accused of blasphemy in Afghanistan since 2001 and the installation of the U.S.-backed Karzai government.
