The people that we were in contact would never say they are Afghan. Instead, they would refer to one of the 500+ clans of Pashtun, or some others like Hezaras or Balochs. You may hear in the mainstream media the Afghan people, but in the Stan the refer to their own tribe which in some cases are over 2000 years old. Borders mean nothing.
