The "Kabul government" is a phrase used to describe the current government of Afghanistan, led by Hamid Karzai. This phrase is used to emphasise how it is not a national government, but only controls the capital (Kabul) and the immediate surrounding areas, while the rest of the country remains in control of the Taliban and local warlords. Thus, this may be considered a pejorative term.

Famous quotes containing the word government:
“There are obvious places in which government can narrow the chasm between haves and have-nots. One is the public schools, which have been seen as the great leveler, the authentic melting pot. That, today, is nonsense. In his scathing study of the nations public school system entitled Savage Inequalities, Jonathan Kozol made manifest the truth: that we have a system that discriminates against the poor in everything from class size to curriculum.”
