Police on drugs
A year and a bit ago I was interested to read that the Iraqi police were on drugs, but now it looks like the Afghan police are too. The BBC reports that the British FCO reckon 60 percent of the cops in Helmand are drug users, although on World Service this morning they were talking to a former senior American official in Afghanistan who was saying it's probably not as bad as it sound, because some of them will just be smoking dope as opposed to being heroin addicts. So that's fine then.
