Ted Rall, who went to Afghanistan with his wife as a correspondent for The Village Voice and two radio stations, tells the Los Angeles Times about his "12th century experience." Rall, a cartoonist by trade, has an acerbic and cynical take on the war. For example, Rall descibes how Taliban surrender means a quick shave and a change of headgear. "The next day they are Northern Alliance troops. ... This is a fashion war," Rall tells the LA Times. "They could change hats again tomorrow -- and they probably will."
