Ahmad Shah Massoud, Shir-e-Panjshir, Lion of the Panjshir Valley, will be remembered. Massoud, whose militia resisted the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, then fought the bloodthirsty Taliban, may be gone. Al Qaeda assassinated Massoud six years ago today, two days before the Sept. 11th attacks. But he has a legacy preserved in history. His convictions and objectives live on among us.
