The BBC has been working itself up into quite a frenzy ahead of the Afghan elections. The narrative is all about minimising any sense of progress being made. We had this diatribe broadcast at 7.49am this morning suggesting that the Afghan government does everything possible to “promote fraud” (Bit like Labour, really) and then at 8.34am the BBC interviewed Afghan “warlord turned militant” Gulbuddin Hekmatyar – who is the US most wanted man in the area. Lucky there wasn’t a drone nearby when this interview was taking place.
