Discussions will not change the culture of corruption among the Afghans. Any US aid dollars should not go to the government, but rather should be US administered directly to supervised contractors, etc. The question of whether it is reasonable to build roads, schools, power plants and hospitals that the Taliban will simply destroy is another issue. Mr. Obama took on the Afghan war as his own 5 years ago. It seems he learned nothing from George Bush and Iraq.
