The Freedom to .... 

Apparently, thanks to George W. Bush, the people of Afghanistan now feel that they have the freedom to turn our worst nightmares and urban legends into reality.
Ismail is only 10 years old, but the horrors of the past three months will be with him to his grave. He was rescued by the Afghan authorities on Friday, after being kidnapped in March with his brother Ibrahim, 6.

Quietly, he told seeing the bodies of four boys of about his age that had been cut open. "They took us to a mountain where I saw the bodies," he said. "They had taken out the organs. They were on the ground at the bottom of this mountain, then the men took them away. They were boys of about our age. I thought I would not live long when I saw them. I was scared."


(The intelligence chief for the south, Dr Abdullah Laghmani) believes the kidnappers, involved in a worrying rise in the number of disappearing children across the country, planned to sell the kidneys in Pakistan, where patients are prepared to pay large amounts of money for healthy organs.
Next thing you know, they'll be sending email rumors that Kandahar Fried Chicken has been genetically enhanced by exposure to DU ... and it will be true!
