Sources of Inexplicable Wealth

January 14, 2009

Bravo to the Washington Post for at least attempting to write about corruption in Afghanistan. But really, what a pansy-ass, flimsy article. Everyone in Afghanistan knows where the elite get their money, pretty much everyone in the West knows (except the ignorant), and yet the standards of journalism (or the failure to have truly rigorous digging/investigating done) prevent them from getting as deep and specific as they should. Or maybe I expect too much.
