Nine Weeks On

My father was 68 when he died of cancer. Far more recently, so was my friend and comrade, Alvin Smith. So I feel for the family and friends of Charles Krauthammer.

But in making the case for an invasion of Iraq, Krauthammer claimed that the war in Afghanistan had lasted only nine weeks. And he got away with it. Those were the times.

As it turns out, the war in Afghanistan has outlived Charles Krauthammer.
