This photo taken Oct. 10, 2012 shows U.S. Brig. Gen. John Charlton, right, talking with Afghan National Civil Order Police (ANCOP) brigade commander Gul Mohammed Rasikh at the U.S base in An Band district, Ghazni province, Afghanistan. Fed up with the Taliban closing their schools and committing other acts of oppression, men in a village about 100 miles south of Kabul took up arms late last spring and chased out the insurgents with no help from the Afghan government or U.S. military. Small-scale revolts like the one in the village of Kunsaf, Ghazni, in recent months indicate bits of a do-it-yourself anti-insurgency that the U.S. hopes Afghan authorities can transform into a wider movement that could undercut the Taliban in areas it still dominates after 11 years of war.
