I'm sorry AES but the Afghanistan locals are NOT alquada. They are people just like us that have no control over their own land. Please don not confuse a whole country with a terrorist group.
That's a relief. I wasn't aware there are no local kleptocrats or corrupt government officials and construction contractors in the region.
To clarify, I know that not everyone in Afghanistan is a terrorist.
I recommend Douglas A. Wissing's book "Funding the Enemy: How U.S. Taxpayers Bankroll the Taliban", published this past March.
