As President Karzai of Afghanistan visits the USA this week, we explore the situation there. According to our guest, John Sifton, Human Rights Watch country specialist for Afghanistan: “It’s a combination of Taliban attacks, corruption, criminal activity and crucially warlordism, often with a close relationship to local authorities.”
Unfortunately we are part of the problem. Sifton says, “As early as 2002, U.S. forces were responsible for torturing and killing prisoners in Afghanistan.”
Remember Afghanistan? The Taliban? Home to Al Qaeda, the perpetrators of 9/11? What is going on there? Is US terror against Afghans the solution to Afghan terror against Americans?
