Who Will Run Afghanistan?
The secret military reports leaked by WikiLeaks demonstrates that while official strategy is to empower Afghanis to run a modern country, the Afghans treat foreigners as the true power. Drawing on the leaked documents, Al Jazeera says: "Foreign development officers appeared ready and willing to contravene or work to remove Afghan officials from power. In October 2006, the director of economy in the province of Paktika earned a particularly bad review. 'He has been in the position for one year and has no formal background in economy, finance or business,' one report says. 'He was not able to describe an economical development plan or a tax plan that is in place and being implemented.'"
