Maybe this is Ali Mohd Kamil’s* idea of a filing system. Since sinks are the prefered bathing venue (on the rare occasion when a bath is desired), the shower is a huge waste of space. . . until now.
According to a U.S. official that may or may not desire to remain anonymous, this is “[Afghan] Government records storage at the Ministry of Interior.” Continuing, he says:
Yes, these are showers;
No, the water has not been turned off; and
Yes, water drips from the shower heads.
Perhaps the record of U.S. involvement can be washed from the Afghan records if not the collective memory of the residents and our economy.
The U.S. has thought of other document storage options. But for $12 Billion, you would think someone would have thought of buying a file cabinet.
