A poster of Afghan President Hamid Karzai hangs on a partition during a graduation ceremony for the first class of the Afghan Public Protection Force at the Jalrez District Center in Afghanistan's Wardak province Tuesday March 31, 2009. The program is the first of it's kind in Afghanistan to use villagers trained by US Special Forces to provide security in their own neighborhoods. Opponents of the program warn it will arm local militias, but the Afghanistan government argues it is crucial in confronting the rising insurgency. (image by David Goldman)
