its been repaired and reports of KAM Air etc resuming flights.BBC's latest report (aug 01) is balanced, objective reporting for once (albeit with almost every point lifted off twitter)
Shows Taliban at Lashkargah's peace roundabout & Ismail Khan (short father christmas looking one) of Herat calling on anyone with a gun to come join the fight against the Taliban. No mention of Kandahar's damaged runway thought- maybe that's repaired?
This is an incredible ending to it all, but more amazing is the almost realtime, access all areas, battlefield reports and diplomatic exchanges we've got access to. I think Taliban & allies use of social media have made this the most accessible battlefield of all time. And I was there man (on twitter behind a keyboard, warrior-ing away)
