It's a hell of a lot easier to promote chaos than it is to promote order...
Ahmad Shah Masoud was assassinated two days before 9/11 with an explosives filled camera, by taliban posing as ME reporters. He was influential and respected enough to have had a chance to keep other tribal leaders and warlords in line, unlike Hamid Karzai, tongue in cheek called the Mayor of Kabul. Masoud was a Tajik (related to Persians). Like most strong leaders, he was probably a tough SOB. Rather a bastard for a leader, than a 'nice' man like Jimmy Carter, and the mess in the ME he left us with.
