Rethinking Afghanistan

Each day, more disturbing news comes from Afghanistan, and each day, Obama’s decision to increase the number of troops is called into question. It is particularly disturbing that he has no exit strategy from Afghanistan, and is running the risk of miring the U.S. in another endless war.

Brave New Films has put together excellent interviews with Afghanis (“Afghan” by the way, refers to a kind of blanket not a person from Afghanistan), economists, and troops on the ground who talk about the rampant corruption and misuse of our tax dollars. You can find the interviews here.

Like the country, Congress is distracted with the economy. We need to bring this to their attention.
