Why am I in Afghanistan?

Why am I in Afghanistan?

When many people were concerned about the Bush administration bombing another country unjustly, namely Iran, I decided I needed to go to the country to find out about this so-called “axis of evil.”

While there was much to criticize about the Iranian government, I found the people to be the most hospitable I have encountered.  I also found a lot of the demonizing of the country to be unfounded.

I’ve been spending much more time working on a change in Afghanistan policy since the beginning of the year.  As with Iran, I thought that traveling to Afghanistan would help deepen my understanding of the country and discuss, with more authority, policy recommendations.
