June 20, 2002: Afghan Council Appears Manipulated in Selecting Warlords      Complete 911 Timeline

       The long-awaited loya jirga, or grand council, is concluded in Afghanistan. This council was supposed to be a traditional method for the Afghan people to select their leaders, but most experts conclude that the council is clearly rigged. [BBC, 8/1/02] Half of the delegates walk out in protest. [CNN, 6/18/02] One delegate states, “This is worse than our worst expectations. The warlords have been promoted and the professionals kicked out. Who calls this democracy?” Delegates complain, “This is interference by foreign countries,” obviously meaning the US. The New York Times publishes an article (“The Warlords Win in Kabul”) pointing out that the “very forces responsible for countless brutalities” in past governments are back in power. [New York Times, 6/21/02]
People and organizations involved: United States, Afghanistan

Skeptics say the project would require an indefinite foreign military presence in Afghanistan. [Associated Press, 12/26/02; BBC, 12/27/02; BBC, 5/30/02] As of mid-2004, construction has yet to begin.

March 14, 2003: Afghanistan Becomes Number One Heroin Producer      Complete 911 Timeline

       The Afghan government warns that unless the international community hands over the aid it promised, Afghanistan will slip back into its role as the world's premier heroin producer. The country's foreign minister warns Afghanistan could become a “narco-mafia state.” [BBC, 3/17/03] A United Nations study later in the month notes that Afghanistan is once again the world's number one heroin producer, producing 3,750 tons in 2002. Farmers are growing more opium poppies than ever throughout the country, including areas previously free of the crop. [Associated Press, 3/27/03]
