Vultures in the Graveyard of Empires

Obama has deployed almost 100,000 troops to Afghanistan. The Taliban is again on the rise. Civilian and military deaths are doubling and tripling. So called Afghanistan “experts” are on the news 24/7. But do we know what's really going on? Afghan-American sisters, artist/media activist Laimah Osman and researcher/documentary filmmaker Wazhmah Osman, take us beyond official spin and media hype to the reality on the ground in Afghanistan.
