Second and final part of this personal memoir of a year in Afghanistan. From 2007 to 2008 an American served as an adviser to an Afghan-led counter-narcotics advisory team in the provincial capital of Lashkar Gah, Helmand Province. This is the scene of half the world's opium poppy production and a raging Taliban insurgency. It is a microcosm of why U.S. efforts failed in Afghanistan.
