Thomas Schweich, who quit recently as US coordinator for counter-narcotics and justice reform in Afghanistan has opened up his flaps and has lifted the lid from many of the hidden and ugly secrets of the administration of President Hamid Karzai’s government in Afghanistan.
Thomas Schweich is an insider and is an point-man. What he says has got the weightage, as he was one of the main man in Kabul to sustain the puppet regime of Hamid Karzai, and interestingly enough, Thomas Schweich is also the hot favorite of the Indians, and has also spent some of his career time in India.
Now Thomas Schweich accuses President Hamid Karzai’s government of protecting the opium trade. That and he also says that this regime is involved in arms smuggling and not much interested in tackling the US interests in the region. Moreover, Thomas says that US should replace this regime with someone little less corrupt.
Thomas says that Afghan President and his toadies are filling their foreign accounts with the black money obtained from opium trade. Such is the character of the puppet, who threatens to attack Pakistan, huh?
