Afghan school girls attacked with acid

 

On Monday, All Things Considered, NPR, aired a interview with former NPR reporter Sarah Chase.  Sarah has left reporting and now runs agricultural cooperative in Kandahar, Afghanistan.  As she reports, the situation there is appalling, and deteriorating rapidly.  There are approximately 30,000 American troops on the ground in Afghanistan – less than in any post-conflict nation building the US has been involved in.   Lower even than Haiti in the 1990s.  More troops are called for, to protect and mentor the Afghan people, not to “hunt and kill bad guys.”

Barack Obama’s inauguration cannot come soon enough.
