Summary
The U.S.-led effort to end Afghanistan's role as host to Osama bin Laden and other anti-western Islamic terrorists requires not only the defeat of the Taliban but also the reconstruction of a stable, effective, and ideologically moderate Afghan state. An important milestone was achieved in June 2002 with the generally successful conclusion of an Emergency Loya Jirga ("grand council"), which confirmed Hamid Karzai, an ethnic Pashtun member of the western educated elite with family ties to the former king as head of a Transitional Administration. The Loya Jirga failed to satisfy many of the participants, especially Pashtuns, who feel under-represented in distribution of cabinet ministries, but more than 1,500 Afghans from all ethnic groups and walks of life had an opportunity to vent long pent up feelings and engage in free flowing debate about the country's future. Karzai has gained the nominal support of major regional warlords, but his authority remains dependent on support from the militarily powerful ethnic Tajik minority and his status as a broadly acceptable figure who can attract international assistance. The Bush Administration and the Congress have indicated strong support for humanitarian relief and reconstruction, but the nature of the longer term U.S. role remains to be determined. In reality, U.S. forces have repeatedly played a de facto peacekeeping role in defusing conflicts among Afghan allies, and have sometimes become embroiled in local power struggles. A stable and ideologically moderate Afghanistan is unlikely to be constructed without significant near-term aid to reestablish security, relieve immediate economic distress, and provide alternate employment for former combatants, and extensive and long-term reconstruction support from bilateral and multilateral aid donors
