The new government evolving as an Interim Authority towards the establishment of the current Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is led by a Pashto, Hamid Karzai. This new government was realized through meeting of Afghan representatives (a loya jirga) that came to be known as the Bonn Agreement (Ayub & Kuovo, 2008; Johnsen, 2006; McNerney, 2005-2006). The Afghan state currently takes a toll on reconstruction efforts under the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. The most profitable commodity in Afghanistan is its poppy cultivation which fuels almost three quarters of the world’s opium and heroin trade. This activity creates an ongoing security issue for the fledgling government, its international patronage countries, and the Afghan people who are most susceptible to the violence and corruption engendered by illegal drug trafficking (Ayub & Kuovo, 2008; Barajas, Howard, Miner, Sartin & Silver, 2006; Schetter, 2002; Emadi, 2005; Weinstein & Vaishnav, 2006).
