Overview

Rethink Afghanistan

While the U.S.'s 2001 invasion of Afghanistan was seen as an imperative after the attacks of 9/11, the ongoing conflict has seen a massive drop in public support and a questioning of whether military force can solve the struggling nation's social, political, and economic problems. This documentary from filmmaker Robert Greenwald (Uncovered: The War on Iraq) calls for a de-escalation of the war in Afghanistan in favor of non-military solutions and makes its case through rarely seen news footage and interviews with foreign-policy experts such as Andrew Bacevich, Stephen Kinzer, and Tariq Ali. ~ Sandra Bencic
