I wish I could say I was happy about this evening’s news. It is historic. I take no joy in it because the US will not bring the troops home from Afghanistan, will not close Guantanamo, will not dismantle Homeland Security, and will not dismantle the TSA. Just think of all the bloodshed that could have been avoided (not to mention the trillions of dollars spent) if Charlie Wilson got a few million dollars to build schools in Afghanistan after the Soviets were driven out.
