Afghans Increasingly Turning to Taliban’s Shadow Govt

Reports of a Taliban “shadow government” complete with its own court system are not new. Indeed, we’ve been covering the phenomenon for well over a year, and it has only grown as the group’s influence has gained.

Despite assurances from the Karzai government that they are in full control of the situation, the reality on the ground suggests they are not. Even NATO, the Karzai government’s international muscle, concedes that the Taliban is already setting up a “government in waiting,” ready to return to power the second the Karzai government crumbles.
