There’s No Hope for Afghans Until we Win the War on Corruption – (we’re losing folks)

Nine years of war, many parts of Afghanistan ungoverned and how many lives rendered to liberate the Afghan people, but there still exists corruption at all levels of government.  Now one step further Afghanistan’s President fires the Head Prosecutor fighting corruption.

A leading prosecutor in Afghanistan says he has been fired for refusing to block corruption investigations into senior government officials.

Fazel Ahmed Faqiryar, a former deputy attorney-general, told The New York Times newspaper that Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president, and his allies had blocked or stalled investigations into more than two dozen officials.
