E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PHUM SNAR PGOV PINR PTER AF
SUBJECT: LEAHY VETTING REQUEST: INL TRAINING OF PSD FOR
HERAT CHIEF PROSECUTOR


1. (U) This is a time-sensitive action request; please see
para 3.

2. (SBU) Background: In order to comply with Leahy Amendment
vetting requirements, this cable forwards (in para 5) the
names and biodata of eight candidates for INL-funded training
as members of a personal security detail (PSD) for Herat
Chief Prosecutor Maria Bashir. The Chief Prosecutor was
asked to nominate candidates whom she trusts fully. Chief
Prosecutor Bashir has received threats, due both to the fact
she is an Afghan woman in a senior position, and because of
her prosecution of corruption. Post therefore is eager to
have these PSD candidates complete this training as soon as
possible, so that they can begin to provide Chief Prosecutor
Bashir protection.

3. (U) Action Request: In light of this background, and
given the relatively small number of candidates on this list,
post request that the Department complete its Leahy review of
the candidates as soon as possible. Post wishes to thank
Department in advance for its support on this matter.

4. (U) INL has conducted in-country vetting and possesses no
evidence that any of the candidates have committed human
rights violations. Post has made a good faith effort to
ensure that the individuals who provided only one name truly
have only one name.

Satan may not exist, but the Evil One has always been a handy tool for priests and politicians alike.

Currently, Iran is the latest bogey conjured up by Washington to (a) justify its foreign policy interventions and (b) distract attention from its foreign policy failures.

Once upon a time, the Soviet Union was the nightmare threat for the entire Cold War era – and since then the US has cast the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State in the same demonic role. Iran is now the latest example…More
