Mission accomplished, so look over there

Reuters reports – Afghan woman stoned to death for adultery:
An Afghan woman has been stoned to death for adultery, police said on Sunday, the first such incident in Afghanistan since the Taliban's ouster from power.

Amina, a 29 year-old married woman, was publicly stoned to death on the basis of a district court's decision on Thursday in Argo district to the west of Faizabad, the provincial capital of Badakhshan, they said.

At least it's being investigated by Kabul. But there's no upside to this. There's no way not to think we're going backward.
