Former Afghan MP, human rights activist and author Malalai Joya has a message worth spreading on today’s tenth anniversary of the start of the war in Afghanistan, now the longest military conflict in the history of the United States.

Joya served as a Parliamentarian in the National Assembly of Afghanistan from 2005 until early 2007, after being dismissed for publicly denouncing the presence of what she considered to be warlords and war criminals in the Afghan parliament. An outspoken critic of the Karzai administration and its Western supporters, Joya’s perspective is not one you find often in the US media.
