Corrupt Afgan Cops

If there is one truly ineffective (read corrupt and out of control) agency in Afghanistan it is the local police forces. Yet the leaders of some of the police forces in the most dangerous areas of the country say they oppose the surge of US forces that our general on the ground wants for their areas. The reason that they offer is that more American troops will look like occupation; the money would be better spent on–well–them. I certainly agree that our goal is to let the Afgans fight their own battles, the solution is not funding corrupt and ineffective agencies of any sort. The fact that these leaders can voice their thoughts is indicative of a level of freedom–bought by our troops–that they’re not used to having.
