Corruption in Afghanistan - Sarah Chayes
Sarah Chayes spent years in Afghanistan living among the Afghan population over the past twelve years. She has seen first hand the good and bad that ISAF has accomplished in that country of perpetual conflict. Part of the bad is the support the United States and its allies provide to corrupt Afghan leaders at the local to national level. She has just penned an article about corruption in Afghanistan appearing in the March / April 2014 issue of Politico Magazine entitled "The Money Pit". Sarah is a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and served as a special adviser to two commanders of the the international troops in Afghanistan.
