Dan Darling does our homework for us in an information-packed post on Chechnya. Any in the mainstream media reading this owe it to themselves to follow this link. I have never encountered anything on the subject in any of our newspapers so extensive and useful. Did you know most Chechens were Sufis (I didn’t) who were now being overwhelmed by Wahhabis? There’s plenty more.
UPDATE: Bravo to James too for his Labor Day Bleat. But as terrific a literary craftsman as he is, isn’t it sad he still has to write things like this?
