TomDispatch has an excellent post on one of our politicians favorite subjects, corruption in Afghanistan. A succinct way to sum it up would be this, if their was no corruption in Afghanistan, there would be no state at all. All the actors, Karzai, the warlords, the Taliban, the US, NATO, Pakistan, India use 'corruption' (channeling money out of approved pathways) to move ahead. There just is no other way.

So, read the article, and the next time one of our clown politicians (Obama, Clinton, Biden, etc. etc. etc.) repeats the mantra about Karzai needing to clean thing up, you'll know just how much bullshit is involved and how they are unwilling and unable to say anything that will not just shovel more of the stinky stuff.
