I was reading the Mudville Gazette
this morning (you should be doing that too) when I saw a story about rioting near Bagram AF
. My old friend Kabir Ahmed is quoted a few times. I did notice that the Washington Post calls him the Bagram Police Chief...er, not as such. He is the District Attorney - granted, their version of the District Attorney has a lot more power than ours, and he can direct police forces - but he is not the district police chief.Kabir inspecting construction we were paying for under CERP, for the Bagram District government offices.
The most disheartening thing about the riot (after the people being killed, of course) was that the local shops near the first gate were broken into and damaged. This really tells me that outsiders were brought into the area to stage this riot.
