Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

The Taliban is part of Afghanistan’s “political fabric,” Defense Secretary Robert Gates said Friday.

During a visit to Pakistan, Gates questioned whether leaders of the Islamist movement were “prepared to play a legitimate role” in the neighboring country’s future.
