Afghanis more optimistic about Afghan future than Americans

Point Blank at Security Watchtower observes a Footnote in the Forgotten War.

  1. Almost nine in 10 -- 87 percent -- say the U.S.-led overthrow of the Taliban in 2002 was a good thing for the people of Afghanistan.
  2. And three-fourths of Afghans say their country is headed in the right direction, far higher than in the United States, where only three of 10 say that.

Who has the better perspective from which to make such a judgment?

Give the Afghans subscriptions to the NYT and Wash. Post. They will think they are on the wrong track in no time.
