Rethink Afghanistan: The Role of Pakistan

Director Robert Greenwald has released the second installment of his documentary on the Afghanistan War. Greenwald–who is part of an effort to oppose the escalation of the Afghanistan War–explores how the war relates to Pakistan:

Pakistan is in such a perilous state that Bruce Riedel, a foreign policy expert leading President Obama’s Afghanistan review, has called it “the most dangerous country in the world today.” Pakistan has nuclear weapons and a government disconnected from the poverty, malnutrition, and lack of healthcare afflicting its people. And though Pakistan remains a U.S. ally, tensions continue to rise as the U.S. considers broadening military strikes within Pakistan’s borders. Part two of Rethink Afghanistan focuses on how the Afghanistan crisis affects Pakistan and all of us.
