  • Why Ted Cruz Won Iowa

    While the attention of political pundits has already moved on to next week's New Hampshire primary, the outcome in Iowa provides an interesting preview of the road ahead. Cruz's win provides a clearer picture of GOP voters.

  • Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Roosh?

    Kelly Hayes of Truthout: "I am not afraid of Roosh Valizadeh. Because to me, he is not the face of rape. I am afraid because most of the women I know who have survived assault have not been abused by blustering creeps like Roosh."

Thom Hartmann: Part II: Edward Girardet Interview | "Killing the Cranes: A Reporter's Journey Through Three Decades of War in Afghanistan"

Thursday, 22 September 2011 04:20 By Thom Hartmann, Truthout | Video

Truthout is offering "Killing the Cranes: A Reporter's Journey Through Three Decades of War in Afghanistan" for a minimum one-time donation of $35, or a monthly commitment of $15 or more to Truthout.

Edward Girardet, Writer and journalist since mid-1970s on conflict, humanitarian and media issues joins Thom Hartmann. His new book is "Killing the Cranes: A Reporter's Journey Through Three Decades of War in Afghanistan". Few reporters have covered Afghanistan as intrepidly and humanely as Edward Girardet. Now, in a gripping, personal account, Girardet delivers a story of that nation's resistance fighters, foreign invaders, mercenaries, spies, aid workers, Islamic extremists, and others who have defined Afghanistan's last thirty years of war, chaos, and strife. As a young foreign correspondent, Girardet arrived in Afghanistan just three months prior to the Soviet invasion in 1979. Over the next decades, he trekked hundreds of miles across rugged mountains and deserts on clandestine journeys following Afghan guerrillas in battle as they smuggled French doctors into the country, and as they combated each other as well as invaders. He witnessed the world's greatest refugee exodus, the bitter Battle for Kabul in the early 1990s, the rise of the Taliban, and, finally, the US-led Western military and recovery effort that began in 2001.
