As NDS director Amrullah Saleh argued, “We should put our weight behind the
nationalist ones and not allow the militant or fanatic ones to take over. This is only
possible if we keep the nationalist ones on our pay-rolls.”32 The NDS also
enjoyed some counterinsurgency success in urban cities, such as Kabul. In late
2006, for example, NDS agents infiltrated and took down several suicide
terrorism cells in Kabul with assistance from Western intelligence agencies.33

challenges. Historically, Afghanistan has been the victim of misgovernance.
Therefore, formation and consolidation of good governance in Afghanistan
should become the main sign of difference between the past decade and the next
one. In order to turn ...

However, the poor state of governance in Afghanistan is also a result of mistaken
assumptions by the United States and the international community about Afghan
attitudes toward foreigners and about the role of tribes in the Afghan polity. One
such widespread but fallacious notion is that Afghans are basically allergic to any
foreign presence, especially to outsiders trying to get them to practice good

population is the provision and support of education, training and
knowledgetransfer in the field of good governance. It is therefore one of the

This is unlikely to happen for a number of years, but will still remain a target for
both the Afghans to achieve total economic independence, and the international
community to extricate themselves from the country. With billions of dollars
reaching Afghanistan yearly (as seen in Figure 7), the question of how the money
