Bush Market

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – FEBRUARY 15, 2013: Sellers sits outside their shop in Bush Market. If a case of soap is pilfered from a U.S. military base here or pinched from a NATO shipping container, it will probably, sooner or later, end up for sale in the Bush Market, a sort of thieves' outlet mall in central Kabul. Named after the former U.S. president who launched the war in Afghanistan, the bazaar has flourished for more than eight years, thanks to the long presence of foreign troops that provided war booty aplenty. But in the Obama era, with its steady withdrawal of U.S. forces, the good times are ending. (Photo by Lorenzo Tugnoli/For the Washington Post)
