Karzai the U.S. pupil

Re "Can the U.S. teach Hamid Karzai how to be a wartime president?," Opinion, Nov. 10

I always suspected that "Max Boot" was really the nom de plume of some comedy writer. In Tuesday's Times, he finally confirmed my suspicions.

Boot suggests that President Obama send former President George W. Bush to Afghanistan to teach Hamid Karzai "how to be a leader in wartime."

I don't need to explain why that's funny, do I?

The headline on this column should have read: "Can Karzai teach Obama how to be a wartime president?"
