Jamil Jan Kochai: Deep memories, deeper pain
A few days after 9/11, I stood on the blacktop of my elementary school in West Sacramento assuring my best friend that Afghanistan had nothing to do with the attacks on the World Trade Center. I was 9 years old. I knew nothing about Osama bin Laden, Al Qaeda or the Taliban. What I did know was that I’d visited Logar province in Afghanistan and the people there were very sweet and very loving and incapable of such destruction. “
 
 
Tom Peck: Corbyn is still unable to be wrong about anything
In front of around 500 people, Jeremy Corbyn strode on to the stage to the sound of about six hands clapping. “Thank you so much for that warm reception,” he said. The reception had not been warm at all, but these were the words he had already decided to say, and so say them he did. It was, in its way, a beautifully clear window into the Corbyn psyche, which is best understood as that of a wasp. When a dying wasp flies to the
   
Chris Riotta: If Sanders can run in 2020, so should Hillary
Hillary Clinton has not announced a 2020 presidential campaign — though we already know what would happen if she did. Boisterous (mostly male) political pundits would immediately lay an axe to her candidacy, decrying her “selfish” and “illogical” attempts to serve the American public in the White House.

Since security, by definition, is protection against a scheming adversary resorting to a ‘covert’ attack, the counter-intelligence
   
Adam Withnall: Kashmir attack to impact polls
It was the deadliest single attack in three decades of guerrilla conflict. Now, people of Kashmiri origin living and working across India are watching with growing terror as a car bombing back home in the far north threatens to turn their lives upside down. Last Thursday’s attack was months in the planning, officials believe, but unfolded in moments. A car bomber who had sworn allegiance to a Pakistan-based militant group was
 
 
Sean O’Grady: Is it time to levy a tax on ‘fast fashion’?
Now that we’re getting a grip on food waste and plastic waste, we really need to make a start on fashion waste – and end this fad of “fast fashion”. The MPs on the Environment Select Committee suggest we could start small, with a tax of one penny per clothing item, which would yield about £35m a year, something that could fund better clothing collection – for charity, reuse or recycling. It should work. Yet we can go further.
