May Photo Header

This month’s header is cropped from a photo by Robert W Kranz.

The caption that went along with the pic said this:

Khost, Afghanistan, 07.11.2002: Mohammad, one of the more angry young Pashtun fighters. He was just over 24, but had been with various commanders as long as he could think.They had been his family after the Russians killed his parents and now he was manning a surveillance post in the mountains just west of Khost.

It’s safe to assume that Mohammad was at the time in one of those “good guy” Afghan local militias. Today he is possibly in the Afghan National Army or Police. Or maybe in some loosely aligned Neo-Taliban outfit. Or maybe he has found a civilian job. Or maybe he is unemployed. Who knows.


Responses

  1. Most likely he’s dead.

  2. It would be interesting to know what happened to him.
