Abstract:

In this program from Iran's PressTV, a news crew travels throughout Afghanistan to learn first-hand how people there feel about the foreign presence in their country. The journalists find anger and frustration in Kandahar, much of it directed against the Americans, who they blame for dividing the loyalties of Afghan tribes. In Kabul the immediate concern is not foreign policy, but trying to feed families as aid shipments are diverted by corrupt middlemen. And while some in Jalalabad express gratitude towards the countries that have arrived to help, one citizen sums up the feelings of many: "They haven't come here to rebuild Afghanistan, they have come to exploit it.
