The U.S. and its 'Whiskey Boys' in Afghanistan

According to Abdul Satar Saadat, the legal consultant to former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, during the U.S.' 20-year war in Afghanistan, the Afghan government implemented the "generational change strategy" to replace the aging ruling class. A group of young foreigners of Afghan heritage were appointed to important high-level positions by President Ghani under the guise of the "generational change strategy." Some Western embassies, such as the U.S., called them "Whiskey Boys," as they lived luxuriously in the foreign embassy area of Kabul, playing poker with money earned through corruption.
