NY Times:
A hilltop overlooking Kabul, where a $100 million Saudi-funded mosque and education complex was to be built. Construction was scheduled for completion this year, but the hilltop site remains a dusty lot where boys fly kites and drug addicts crouch beside a cemetery wall.

Saudi Arabia has voiced support for American efforts to nourish Afghanistan’s democracy, but it has also lavishly funded Sunni extremism under various guises.
They seem more interested in expanding the reach of Wahabism than stopping the Taliban reign of terror.  The Saudis seem blind to the terrible consequences of their investments in radical Islam.
