3. Biodata:
aman_afzalGen Maj Afzal Aman said on 20120517  that Afghan security forces are sometimes forced to halt missions when the target turns out to have influential contacts in the Afghan government. His remarks hinted at a potentially far more enduring obstacle that widespread influence peddling and corruption might pose to basic military operations.

It's also rare to hear these concerns expressed so bluntly by a high-ranking member of the Afghan military itself.
