what about Pashtunwali there, as far as I know it has been practised even during Taliban times and it still works well. Seems like there is almost no warlordism. What do they do to keep that place safe? Are there arbaki units? Do they pay taxes? Is it possible to travel there from Kabul and talk to tribal elders?

Here is a youtube video that can bring some insight how Khost really is.

Its mostly a real male dominated society like any other Pashtun citys and vilagers. On the street you almost see no women. So Pashtunwali is still kept alive there when its about women, I don't know how far and how strict they are on other things......
