Part #3 of the series by Steve Horn and myself on US "soft power" in 
Central Asia, the result of a year-long inquiry. A look specifically at 
the World Bank's role in restructuring the education system in 
strategically located and resource rich Kazakhstan. In this piece, we 
examine some of the actual players, the imperial "soft power boots on 
the ground"; those operatives working in partnership with Kazakhstan's 
dictatorship, as "go-betweens" and "men behind the curtain"
