Your Call 101107 The Sixth Anniversary of the Invasion of Afghanistan

What are the future prospects for Afghanistan? On the next Your Call, we will have a conversation about the political situation in Afghanistan, six years after the U.S. invasion, which marked the first phase of the Bush administration’s so called War on Terror. Today, five provinces in Afghanistan are back in the Taliban’s control, opium production is increasing, and violence is at an all-time high. How are people fairing in today’s Afghanistan? And what’s the main mission of the United States? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and you.
