The U.S. has now been militarily engaged in Afghanistan for more than 16 years, but most Americans don't know a whole lot about the people of Afghanistan. This map, created by the U.S. Army in September 2001, shows Afghanistan's assumed ethnic geography at the beginning of the war. (Over the last 16 years, though, Afghanistan has created more refugees than any country except Syria, which has undoubtedly changed the substance of this map. Afghanistan's 2013 census pointedly did not ask questions about language or ethnicity.)
