The declining state of the war in Afghanistan

September 21st, 2012

“It’s hard to imagine anything that could do more damage, at least over the short term,” journalist Dexter Filkins of The New Yorker says about NATO’s decision to stop joint patrols with Afghans.

NATO made the decision following a spate of so-called “Green-on-Blue” attacks – Afghan soldiers killing coalition soldiers.

“If you can’t train them, then what happens?” Then we’re stuck. Then we’re really stuck.”

Christiane Amanpour spoke with Filkins, who was written extensively on the region, about the looming challenges facing Afghanistan.
