Bag’s Take-Away:
This shot reminds me of a still from the set of a soap opera…..heavy dramatics on a poorly lit set. But with the lazy susan conference table, it’s sort of fun to try to figure out who is interacting with whom: the U.S., U.K., Russia, and China seem to be discussing something of world import while Germany gives France an austere stare.

Bag’s Take-Away:
Remember that Karzai was chosen for his job because of his Western sympathies and commercial ties? This image harkens back to that and reminds us no matter how the West thinks of him, he still has to govern a “third world” country. Not saying he’s a good or bad guy in either role, just noting that he’s much closer to who the West thought he was when away from home.
