Afghanistanica Retraction #986

March 7, 2008.

When you’re wrong, you’re wrong. Back in September I wrote about the firing of governor Murad of Kapisa, which the BBC wrote was in retaliation for his criticism of the central government. Apparently there is much more to the story and no journalists picked that up (in English at least). I should quit parroting journalists.

There is a lot about the inner workings of the Afghan government that never makes it out into the press. The full story on governor Murad is one of those things.

Read the original article with retraction here.

So technically speaking, I was wrong. Or maybe not. Fog of government and all that. Who knows?
