A quick update from the ground in Kabul: we've heard that guards at the U.S. Embassy in Afghanistan are very pleased with the State Department's actions so far, with one source saying guards feel as if they've been "liberated from prison." State Department investigators have been conducting thorough, respectful interviews and are not asking guards if they shared information with POGO. The right people are being fired and it looks like we're on the way to restoring an atmosphere of professionalism at the U.S. Embassy.
The contractor who was forced out of his position, by the way, was asked to leave before the State Department arrived on the scene. More as it comes in.
