Titel: Bleeding Afghanistan
Sub titel: How America's Policies Destroyed a Nation
In the years following 9/11, U.S. policy in Afghanistan has received little scrutiny, either from the media or the public. Despite official claims of democracy and women's freedom, Afghanistan has yet to emerge from the ashes of decades-long war. The authors report on the injustice of U.S. policies in Afghanistan historically and in the post-9/11 era. Drawing from declassified government documents and on-the-ground interviews with Afghan activists, journalists, lawyers, refugees, and students, `Bleeding Afghanistan' examines the connections between the U.S. training and arming of Mujahideen commanders and the subversion of Afghan democracy today. `Bleeding Afghanistan' boldly critiques the exploitation of Afghan women to justify war by both conservatives and liberals, analyzes uncritical media coverage of U.S. policies, and examines the ways in which the U.S. benefits from being in Afghanistan.
