Former members of the now defunct security forces of the toppled Afghan Republic in Pitigal, a side valley of the remote district of Kamdesh in the eastern Afghan province of Nuristan.

Hey there! Before you go, please take a moment to support Inkstick Media.
As the first and only foreign policy outlet written explicitly by and for a broader, younger, and more diverse audience, Inkstick offers new views on the big, emergent questions and debates that typically are discussed behind closed doors in Washington DC, in elite diplomatic circles, and the halls of think tanks. Quite simply: Inkstick is foreign policy for the rest of us.
