Spread the Word: An Afghan man has produced a feature-length movie called "Osama", which reveals more about the evil, repressive reign of the Taliban. This is supposed to be the first movie to come out of Afghanistan since the Taliban was defeated. It shows burqa-donning women being attacked by Taliban thugs for seeking work. Parents even shaved their 12-year-old girl's head so she could pass for a boy and earn some money for the starving family.

It's good to be reminded from time to time how despotic and hateful our enemy in this war is, and what good we're doing by rooting out such extremism throughout the Middle East.

I don't know if Americans will ever get a chance to see this movie. But I have a feeling I'll learn more from it than another rant from Michael Moore.
