Some Afghani MPs are pretty naive!

Safia Sidiqi, a lawmaker from Nangarhar province who condemned the legislation, said she cannot remember parliament debating or even voting on the law and she does not know how it came to be signed by Karzai. She called for the law to be recalled to parliament for debate.

"It is impossible in a two-month session for parliament to pass a law more than 200 pages long," she said of the 263-page law.

Maybe we should send our Congress over there to train them how to pass laws without reading them. Using this keen new approach to government, our illustrious legislators passed a 1000+ page "stimulus" bill in just a couple of days!
