The other failure - Afghanistan - part II

Since we wrote a post on an Afghan man tried for converting from Islam to Christianity. (with a reminder that Afghanistan's post-Taleban constitution is based on Sharia law, which means the man may be put to death), I found this great excerpt from President Bush's speech a couple years ago :
We’re making good progress, we really are, in parts of the world. Afghanistan has now got a constitution which talks about freedom of religion and talks about women’s rights. (1/23/04, source White House)
Is that 'spinning' or mere incompetence and ignorance? Or maybe an article is missing, the Afghan Constitution is about freedom of A religion.... maybe but probably not.
