Yup. Unfortunately it's collecting dust somewhere in Foggy Bottom.

Never mind corruption in Afghanistan. Clean up Washington first!
Bring our troops home now and let the Afghanis sort it all out themselves.

Corruption is a world wide epidemic. It seeps into everyday life. Stand and Fight people. Dont let the pod people rule the world.

I've just seen "Afghan War Diary 2004-2010" on youtube and it's a compelling argument to get out. Like Patricia M Lasek says, let the Afghanis sort it all out themselves.

I's pretty difficult to change a culture of corruption that has been operating for centuries. The central government in Afghanistan has very little power to change much of anything.

The US backs and funds other 3rd world countries like Afghanistan, albeit not quite as corrupt. The only way corruption can truly end, is when living standards are raised along with GDP. Underpaid goverment employees including the police and the military will always be corrupt if they are not earning enough. They see the western standards and the temptation is too much! We can only guide but they have to do the work themselves. Time and education.

Seems to me that Joe Biden had it right. Stop sending our brave men and women off to try to change countries mired in their beliefs and bickering for thousands of years. Instead employ ready strike forces to counter our attackers. (paraphrasing, of course)
