Guest Host: Marc Fisher
Almost ten years into the U.S. military mission in Afghanistan, most Americans still know very little about its history and culture. Ed Girardet spent three decades covering the nation’s nuanced past and complex cultural fabric, crossing paths with aid workers, warlords and Osama bin Laden. He helps us understand and explore Afghanistan’s past, present and future.
- Edward Girardet author, "Killing the Cranes: A Reporter's Journey Through Three Decades of War in Afghanistan" (Chelsea Green Publishing, 2011); co-founder and editor; "The Essential Field Guide to Afghanistan" (Media Action International)
