Ali Latifi quotes from Thomas Ruttig’s TUTAP dispatch for AAN:

“In both instances [through Bamyan and through the Salang], the transmission line will end in the power-hungry capital, Kabul, and go south from there,” Thomas Ruttig of the Kabul-based Afghanistan Analysts Network wrote in an online commentary published Monday. “Many of the protesters and politicians involved have possibly not read or understood the — indeed complicated — project documents.”
