ABSTRACT
The article looks at the alleged fraud behind Operation Moshtarak in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan. It mentions the March 12, 2010 meeting of U.S. President Barack Obama in which he asked about the success of Moshtarak that may allow the U.S. to open negotiations with the Taliban. The U.S. government has called on the Karzai government to reinstate an independent electoral commission and end corruption. The talks of the Hamid Karzai government and the United Nations with some of the Taliban and Gulbuddin Hekmatyar's Islamic Party are discussed.
