Graeme Smith on why he thinks the war in Afghanistan is a failure
Graeme Smith, finalist for the RBC Taylor Prize, speaks about the disappointment and chaos surrounding the war in Afghanistan. Smith spent more than six years visiting some of the worst war-ravaged parts of the country, moving freely and witnessing first-hand the impact of the international mission to fight the Taliban insurgency. His book, The Dogs Are Eating Us Now, is a very personal and heart-breaking look at the war and where he believes it went wrong.
