Kunduz Chardara Council

Kunduz Chardara Council
In 2010, I traveled to the Northern Afghan province of Kunduz, and found much of it had fallen under the control of the Taliban. I met these members of the local Chardara Council, or Shura, who told me disillusionment with the Afghan government, widely seen as incompetent and corrupt, and the slow pace of reconstruction had helped create favorable conditions for a Taliban resurgence.
