A very interesting account of a woman who’s working on the ground in Afghanistan with Afghans to make soap (anything but opium). How deep is the corruption? Why is the Taliban gaining ground? What is life like for the people there?
Chayes has her own page here.
Obisidan Wings has more about where both candidates stand on Afghanistan.
One thought on “Sarah Chayes On Afghanistan In The Boston Review: Days Of Lies And Roses”
I admire Sarah Chayes tremendously. What an inspiration!
