A new report from the BBC reveals low optimism in Afghanistan

Monday, February 09, 2009

Our partners, the BBC, just released the results of an opinion poll of residents of Afghanistan. The poll finds that that the majority of Afghans still strongly oppose the return of the Taliban, but are increasingly disillusioned and uncertain about the future of their country. For more on these results, we turn to Ian Parnell of the BBC, who joins us from Kabul, Afghanistan.
