When the Pentagon Papers were leaked to the New York Times by Daniel Ellsburg, the Nixon administration went to court to try to restrain further publication. The Afghanistan Papers published today by the Washington Post have the same kind of infuriating revelations about the Afghanistan war, a war that turned out to be impossible to win. Everyone knew it.

Former Vice President Joe Biden found himself at the center of yet another controversy on Thursday, after it was discovered he had stitched together several stories to construct an emotional tale of pinning a medal on a serviceman in Afghanistan.
