What should the U.S. do about corruption in Afghanistan’s elections?

Before, during and after the elections in Afghanistan, reports of ballot-stuffing and other

irregularities surfaced. Should this affect U.S. policy in the country? Is the U.S. goal to

“bring democracy” to that nation? Or should U.S. policy instead focus on making

Afghanistan inhospitable to terrorist groups? Can a stable pro-Western government be

established there?
