My cousin Jeff became a muslim some years ago. Last summer he traveled to Jordan to visit friends from college and ended up staying there. He got a job as a journalist for an English-language weekly paper in Amman. His articles have been all over the map–a trip to the zoo, a fashion show, a film festival. But with the current turmoil, he’s expanding his mandate a bit. This recent article, about the CIA’s history in Afghanistan, was the third in a series of historical overviews about the situation.
