It is on page A9 of yesterday’s Tuesday’s Pravda-on-the-Hudson:
Kabul, Afghanistan — A three-month deadlock that paralyzed Afghanistan’s new government appeared to dissipate on Monday as a palace official announced 25 names to lead cabinet ministries. . . .
In addition to [army chief of staff] Mr Karimi for defense minister, and [Communist-era general] Mr Ulumi for Interior minister, the government factions agreed to retain the acting head of the Directorate of Security, Ramatullah Nabil. . . [President] Ghani nominated a close supporter from eastern Afghanistan, Qamaruddin Shinwart, for the ministry of border and tribal affairs, a crucial post that includes counternarcotics efforts. Mr Shinwarts served as an official in the Taliban government before the American-led invasion in [December] 2001. [emphasis added]
Of course the significance to some extent depends on what position the said Mister Shinwarts held; but I don’t think the writer and editor at our North American version of Pravda would have seen fit to mention it if he had been a village dogcatcher.
