In a lightning stroke, the Afghan government has cracked down on corruption. Effective this morning, president Hamid Karzai, both his vice presidents, the Karzai cabinet, all but two members of the national legislature, the entire cast and crew of the Afghan National Police and roughly half of the Afghan National Army (the half that actually exists), all low-level, medium-level and high-level bureaucrats, the Afghan judiciary and all provincial governors placed each other under arrest for various high crimes and misdemeanours.
Pending imminent acquittal, the accused all returned to their employment following a brief adjournment for sweet tea and hashish.
Trials were convened shortly after a delightful lunch but the Afghan prosecutors, being defendants themselves, were unable to call any evidence thus leading to the dismissal of all charges. President Karzai hailed the proceedings as proof that, in his homeland, the Rule of Law shall always prevail.
