Civilians continue to be killed by American and coalition forces as the war in Afghanistan stretches into its eighth year with no end in sight. The civilian casualties have gone from the realm of tragedy and have now become frequent enough to turn the population against the United States in a war President Obama and congressional Democrats have escalated over the last several months.
Rethink Afghanistan is a ground-breaking, full-length documentary focusing on the key issues surrounding the war in Afghanistan. The film, produced by Robert Greenwald of Brave New Films, looks at what military escalation will achieve in Afghanistan, how the war could further destabilize a nuclear-armed Pakistan, and the staggering costs of the war, which could easily exceed $1 trillion.
