"Already, the media myth-making machine is spewing out alarming reports of the 'shadowy force' of Taleban 'fundamentalists' in Darth Vaderish black turbans who want to impose 'purist Islamic' rule. That's scary stuff. But it's not true, and may even be dangerous in this case. Because the Taleban could be the best thing that's happened to Afghanistan in years, and they are counting on Western support for their efforts to restore Afghanistan's independence, and free it from drug smugglers and visiting terrorists. If the policy makers get too hung up on those black turbans, they're going to miss some white hats underneath." -Nancy deWolf Smith, Wall Street Journal, 1995
