02/08/13 – Ann Jones – The Scott Horton Show

by | Feb 8, 2013 | Interviews | 3 comments

Ann Jones, author of Kabul in Winter and War Is Not Over When It’s Over, discusses the end game for Afghanistan as the US prepares to withdraw in 2014; what Ann learned during her several years volunteering with NGOs; how the US squandered a “fresh start” for Afghans by allowing warlords to fill the power vacuum after the Taliban’s ouster; the flood of people and money fleeing Afghanistan for greener pastures abroad; and the epidemic of crimes against Afghan women (and the impunity of their attackers).
