Air Raid Victim to US: Leave Afghanistan

Exclusive footage from the recent US airstrikes in Afghanistan provides a sobering look at the dire situation on the ground.


While Brave New Films Foundation is completing “Civilian Casualties,”
Part 4 of their ongoing series
Rethink Afghanistan
, they have released
this short interview with one Afghan victim of America’s so-called “smart power.”
Najibullah, like many other disabled Afghans, had previously lost a
finger in the long-running occupation and, in early May 2009, he also
lost his home. Thousands of
other Afghan citizens
have fared even worse.
