To the east about 50 miles from Kabul (and an over three-hour drive that includes fording riverbeds and dodging camels), the community center at Jegdalek serves 14 villages near the Pakistani border-an area that Morning Star president Daniel Batchelder says is "on the knife edge" of insurgency: "This is territory more familiar to the Taliban than it is to the government of Afghanistan.
Batchelder says 10 communities have offered land to build centers, and his group has started a Be Their Neighbor program, where stateside donors provide $30 a month to support construction and services. He also has presented the model as a component of a U.S.-NATO exit strategy at headquarters for ISAF, the International Security Assistance Force, NATO's mission in Afghanistan. "You hear over and over in our own nation people say, 'What is the answer? After 10 years of war we have very little progress to show for it,'" Batchelder said.

Daniel Batchelder, president of Morning Star, told me then the area was "on the knife edge" of insurgency and "more familiar to the Taliban" than to Afghanistan's government. When news of the kidnappings came, Batchelder knew U.S. military personnel could be taking steps to secure the release of the three, but he counted on the local elders-and they came through: "We did not know the levels the local people would go to to protect us or advocate for us.
Batchelder told me the ordeal has strengthened rather than weakened his organization's resolve to continue working in a war zone. "Everyone who goes there understands the danger, but we hope and pray to avoid anything like this happening. He said the group also is very aware that freedom for the aid workers came at the cost of another American: "We grieve the loss of the young hero who gave his life. Already, he said, Morning Star is receiving donations for work in Afghanistan designated in the memory of Checque.
