#1 Well cheer up - looks like there is a new job opening. Anybody interested.

AFGHAN SPY CHIEF ... Must be good at dodging poisoned dinners and grenade blasts, must excel at running networks filled with double-agents, and must be fully capable of taking large bribes while accepting foreign support. The following will be considered a PLUS, but experience is important: able to manage a growing drug trade while publicly "destroying" opium crops, able to keep track of which roads are actually safe on any given day (but never venture out of Kabul), and able to complain vociferously about casualties from NATO srikes while simultaneously ignoring all Blue-On-Green incidents.

By the way ... Rantburg - nice photo!
