While the courts in Afghanistan look at the possibility of executing a man for converting to Christianity, Think Progress has exposed how much of an impact this has on the Bush doctrine of “freedom”:
Shortly after its passage, however, President Bush praised the Afghan constitution as protecting freedom of religion. President Bush, 1/23/04:
We’re making good progress, we really are, in parts of the world. Afghanistan has now got a constitution which talks about freedom of religion and talks about women’s rights.
Even as late as this week Bush has gone on about our “spreading freedom” while a man sits in jail awaiting his fate. This is more proof of a failed policy that has helped put this country into bankruptcy.
