Totally out of context quote #3

March 5, 2007.

“The worst is behind us. The traitors have betrayed. The corrupt have led their war of corruption. A purified army remains. A fine army that will now mount a counter-attack. I promise you.”

Context: Ahmed Shah Massoud, leader of the anti-Taliban Shura-yi Nazar, speaking in 1998 to village elders in the Panjshir valley. Quote taken from page 332 of Bernard-Henri Levy’s book “War, Evil, and the End of History.” (Melville House Publishing, 2004).
