News of Afghanistan - The Return IV (Edition 60)

I am grappling with some sort of minor aliment, so this one will be brief, and maybe a little different. I'm still waiting for the Dayquil and Alokozay Tea to work their magic, you see...


Who to look at for information? By category, I will give you some sources:

Military:

CENTCOM is the best, on scene, major organization with significant web-based availability. Subcommand websites like this are a good source.
Example: This story about a foiled IED. Or this story about fighting in Nangahar.

Task Force Phoenix has gone ahead and set up their own site: here. This is an excellent example of an organizational site at the TF level.
Example: Their newsletter.

"We are far too glum to have a good website! Morale sucks!!"
Afghan Media:
There is simply no comparison to Pajhwok Afghan News. Part of the site is subscription only, but it is the best there is, period.
Example: Pakistan yaps at Afghans about drugs.
.
Afghan Islamic Press - subscription only, so no joy unless you shell out.
Kabul Press - does not show much activity lately. Drat.
Bakhtar News Agency - first and famous!
Related - South Asian Media Net. Sketchy, yet useful. A paper out of the UAE that is very useful. [If you are really hardcore - try this newspaper. Heh heh.]
.
News Aggregators:
E-Ariana is simply the best. They also have original editorial cartoons and original opinion pieces.
Example: What's going on twixt Afghanistan and Pakistan anyways?
.
Second place honors must go to Afghan Daily. They are part of the WN Network.
Example: Karzai talkin' it!
.
EIN News, Big News Network, and Afgha are good resources too.
.
Official Sources, non-military:
Humanitarian/UN news at IRIN. Radio Free Afghanistan here.
.
Specialized Sites:
The Afghanistan Analyst - quite useful!
Afghanistanica - I just found this site not long ago. Impressive.
Mind you, this is not a complete list by any means. You can always scan the wire services to pick out something, and you can visit the site of milbloggers who are in country now. I just try to help a little around the edges now and again.

A good list.

IRIN News is another one.

IRIN is part of the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs.

Kool, now we have a kit (or at least instructions) to Build Your Own News-Of-Afghanistan.

I wish I had had this a few weeks ago.
