Tranq Gets It Wrong.

Over in this, and elsewhere about the boards, I’ve been stating that the Taliban has been tearing up poppy fields as fast as they can.

I was wrong.

I went back to to find the links that used to exist there detailing the Taliban’s efforts, only to find that they’d been replaced with new articles detailing the Taliban’s duplicity. The US Gov’t fell for it, but I should’ve known better.

The Taliban lied, and I believed them. Worse, I repeated their lies here on the SDMB.

I’m very sorry.

Thanks for the updated info, Tranquilis!


You were going on what you had instead of making speculations based on propaganda and other such things.

When you found yourself corrected, you rectified the matter.

I think that’s the very essence of the spirit of this board.
