Strengthening Constitutional Self-Government

No Left Turns

Afghan Constitution

Afghanistan has a new constitution. The Christian Science Monitor editorializes that this is a victory for the Bush Doctrine. Even Kofi Annan describes it as a historic achievement. Here is the Washington Post account of it from yesterday. I haven’t seen the final version, but from what I can tell from the reports, it should do. Karzai got most everything he wanted, including a strong executive. The good news is that men and women will be treated equally, albeit they may have to stay sober.
