This film is dedicated to Daniel Pearl, Andy Skrzypkowiak and Mirwais Jalil - three journalists who lost their lives trying to tell the truth about Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Since taking office, President Barack Obama and his envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan, Richard Holbrooke, have both complained about the inadequacy of intelligence and the United States’ “incoherent policy” in the region. The stakes cannot be overstated. President Obama is currently deploying an additional 20,000 soldiers to Afghanistan, in an effort to correct the mismanagement of that campaign during George W. Bush’s administration. It is no accident that the Afghan campaign was severely understaffed and under-funded for the past seven years. Since 2002, the word on the streets of Kabul has been that this situation would lead to an easy re-invasion by the Taliban – which is exactly what has happened.
