From Anand Gopal's new book on Afghanistan:
Dr. Hafizullah, Zurmat’s first governor, had ended up in Guantanamo because he’d crossed Police Chief Mujahed. Mujahed wound up in Guantanamo because he crossed the Americans. Security chief Naim found himself in Guantanamo because of an old rivalry with Mullah Qassim. Qassim eluded capture, but an unfortunate soul with the same name ended up in Guantanamo in his place. And a subsequent feud left Samoud Khan, another pro-American commander, in Bagram prison, while the boy his men had sexually abused was shipped to Guantanamo….
Abdullah Khan found himself in Guantanamo charged with being Khairullah Khairkhwa, the former Taliban minister of the interior, which might have been more plausible—if Khairkhwa had not also been in Guantanamo at the time….
Inter alia, this is how we know that the US is not running the protest show in Hong Kong, as some like to assert. We know it because it hasn't gone horribly wrong. Things haven't escalated or got out of hand. No-one's dead. There are no US diplomats going round handing cookies to the demonstrators and no dubious think tanks pitching instant experts to the networks. Whatever local emnities are on show don't extend further than the type you get in extended families. Nothing is on the verge of either imploding or exploding. Things may just possibly end in a sensible compromise more or less acceptable to all sides. None of the signature characteristics of American intervention are present.
