A day or two ago, Samira Makhmalbaf won the Jury Prize at Cannes. Today, our government is considering taking steps to destabilize the government of her country. In her acceptance speech, she said:

"My film is about an Afghan woman who has no power but who wants to be a president one day. I don't want to be a president myself if the best-known president in the world is George Bush."

It still amazes me how stupid thugs are. Our leaders have the arrogance of Nazis before a Russian winter.

More on Samira Makhmalbaf and her family here.
