Jonathan Landay has the latest. Obviously, our priority over there should be stopping the Taliban, not stopping poppy growers. If Afghanistan were to become a stable, heroin-exporting country that didn’t play host to radical anti-American terrorists that’d be a pretty good outcome in the scheme of things. Heroin use is a real problem, but it’s not the biggest problem in the world, and there’s no good reason to think that crop eradication programs in Afghanistan are an effect way of tackling the problem anyway.
