RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
I am a doctoral candidate in cultural anthropology. Last year, I was doing research among Afghans in Vancouver, B.C., and more than once, I noticed, some--emphasize some--people attributed the bad water quality to Pakistanis (specifically ISI).
I had no way to evaluate the likelihood of such a charge and it seemed far-fetched to me, because I have lived in the luxury of a relatively safe country all my life. I would like to ask the Wahab brothers if they heard such rumours in Afghanistan when they were there and if they could discuss a little how such notions gain purchase, and if they are indeed far-fetched.
Also, thank you for taking the time to be on this show.
