Exiled Afghan president attended school in Lake Oswego

PORTLAND, Ore. (Portland Tribune) — Almost six years ago, then-Lake Oswego School District Superintendent Heather Beck announced a surprising discovery she’d made about a slice of local history.

It turned out that Mohammad Ashraf Ghani, who’d been inaugurated as president of Afghanistan about a year before Beck’s announcement, was a former student in the district. He’d been an exchange student at Lake Oswego High School during the 1966-67 school year and served on the student council. His photo appeared several times in the LOHS yearbook under another name he went by, Ashraf Ahmad.

“Not only are we the top school district in the nation, we produce world leaders,” Beck said at the time.

Ghani remains Afghanistan’s president as of this week, but in name only. Over the weekend, as the Taliban entered the capital city of Kabul and the fall of Ghani’s administration appeared imminent, he fled the county.

2. I'll say it again...

...what do you expect to happen when you transplant people who have little to no connection to their home country due to they or their parents fleeing (and were probably corrupt). Then, send them back to rule the nation and don't have a fucking clue how things work.
