*Secret* Document Surprises No One: Afghanistan Not Ready to Govern Self
When I read the headline over at the Washington Times regarding a super-secret State Department memo that claims that Afghanistan won't be ready to govern itself by the time US troops pull out I had to laugh out loud (LOLing, to you younger readers).That is a .... secret?
Confidential U.S. assessments, which the State Department tried to hide from the public, show nearly all Afghan Cabinet ministries are woefully ill-prepared to govern after the U.S. withdraws its troops, often describing the gaps in knowledge, capability and safeguards as “critical” and describing an infrastructure in danger of collapsing if left to its own accord.Earth to Captain Obvious: how can something that every single person in America knows* be a "secret"? *I use know here as an epistemological certainty
