B sent this link. And, Oh yes, I agree that Kat is a very bad mystic.
Baking day! Reading Day! I got Stones Into Schools over Christmas and this book is completely fascinating! It has a few revelations, told in an off hand sort of way, of where all the money went that was earmarked for rebuilding in Afghanistan. From not receiving even a quarter of the promised funds for rebuilding, to the outright greed of foreign contractors, it's not hard to tell that all the corruption was not in Afghan bureaucracy. Such greed, stupidity and callousness, covered with lies from high places, makes the work that The Central Asian Institute does there all the more important in that country.
