A Week's Worth of Material for Jon Stewart

This report from the NY Times' Dexter Filkins and Mark Mazzetti beggars belief: a key aide of Afghan prez Hamid Karzai evidently is linked to the massive corruption within the Afghan government.  That corruption is a principal reason why most Afghans have no faith in Karzai's government and why so many have turned to the Taliban.

Now it turns out that this guy is on the CIA's payroll.

Says a CIA guy: “If you want intelligence in a war zone, you’re not going to get it from Mother Teresa or Mary Poppins.”

OK, fair enough.  But then, can we please dispense with the baloney about how much we detest the corruption in Karzai's shop?  Does Mr. Obama truly believe he can have it both ways?
