Charges dropped against Afghan Christian

The Afghan powers were obviously looking for an easy way out of this and I applaud them for not just declaring him insane. It was officially because of a "lack of evidence", yes, but they've shown they care about public opinion - something not particularly important to the Taliban!

This story illustrates all that the Afghan people have to overcome. It ain't easy to transform from an extremist Muslim dictatorship to a free country. But I think they'll make it.
