Afghanistan is a country in Asia.

The recognized government of Afghanistan was taken over by Islamic extremists and the Taliban. The Taliban were still in control in 2001.[1]

In 2001, after a terrorist bombing in Jerusalem, it was briefly hypothesized to have been connected to Afghan terrorists. It turned out to be the work of Palestinian terrorist Abdul Majeeb.[2]

In 2002, the Salmon Afkham, the Iranian son of Ayatollah Afkham flew from Afghanistan to the United States for specialized heart surgery.[3]

In 2004, the Iranian ambassador cited stable relations with their neighbors, including Afghanistan, as reason enough for not developing nuclear weaponry.[4]

In 2006, Deputy National Security Advisor Kate Harper hypothesized that decreased cotton farming would lead to an increase in opium production in Afghanistan.[5]
