U.S. Military Lists “Problem” Officials in Secret Document Found in Afghan Bazaar

Jun 19, 2006 2:05pm

Secret U.S. military documents describe a number of Afghan officials as "problem makers" in efforts to stem the illegal drug trade and to combat al Qaeda and Taliban forces. The 2005 document, labeled an "action memorandum," was obtained by ABC News from a "flash disc" sold in a street bazaar 200 yards from the front gate of the U.S. air base in Bagram, Afghanistan. The Los Angeles Times first reported the availability of secret U.S. military documents in the bazaar.  ABC News has discovered new details and documents, including the U.S. assessment of the extent of suspected corruption among Afghan public officials and law enforcement. Another secret document pinpoints the location of "Tier One" Taliban targets in Pakistan. More to come later this week.
