There is something very disconcerting about the goose-stepping soldiers at such a solemn ceremony. If you read a little bit about the history of Afghanistan's first president, you realize he's no George Washington.
Afghan honor guards carry a picture of Afghanistan's first president, Mohammad Daud Khan, during a ceremony to rebury him, in Kabul March 17, 2009. Daud Khan was shot dead in the presidential palace in a military coup in 1978. His remains and those who were killed with him were found at a mass grave recently.
