Effects of news from Afghanistan

  1. Special forces from the US have been accused of torture and murder.

    Best sources, say the news was reported, then diplomats from the US/Afghan embassy disuaded with reports that the forces were aiding and abetting, but not actually the instigators. Then, the State Department issued orders that the event did not happen at all.

    Now. Effects from this....

    Currency markets. The USD is largely based on existing contracts. So, probably very little there. However, on an internal basis, the confidence in overseas military might be an issue.
