http://www.csmonitor.com Once again, the Taliban show their colors by attacking a child whose only crimes were her love of education and publicly speaking her mind. Malala Yousafzai, a child activist who is known for bringing attention to the atrocities of the Taliban, was shot in the head by a Taliban shooter while on her school bus. She is currently in critical condition after surgery. I'm all for an end to our involvement in Afghanistan, but I fear what will happen when we are gone. Just look at their influence in Pakistan.
