Extremely reasonable


In Afghanistan, another country in which elections were held, last month, while it was occupied by the United States military, there were, you will be surprised to hear, significant levels of fraud, although the guy in charge of the elections, one Peter Erben, says that everything considered, the level of voter fraud is “extremely reasonable” and “I do not believe that these irregularities give any reason to doubt the integrity of the elected institutions.” But then again, maybe the person who failed to prevent the fraud isn’t the best person to evaluate the significance of that failure.
