    Default Lost Brothers?

    Does anybody know what this refers to - specifically in the case of militia in Afghanistan? Since the announcement regarding the Afghan Local Police, I have been in the dark about what the meaning of the reintegration of the 'Lost Brothers' means

    Unless you have a specific context that refers to the not-a-militia (village protection forces), I believe the 'brother' terminology comes from Karzai in regards to the TB themselves. He used that word on a few different occasions as recently as the Kabul Conference. Its put that way to make the idea of reintegration/reconciliation more palatable to the Afghan people.

    Hope this helps,
