Eight years already. What's the mission? What's the Exit Strategy?

RETHINK AFGHANISTAN is a brand new film by Robert Greenwald, whose other films include Outfoxed, Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price, and Iraq For Sale. A Brave New Films release, October 2009 (http://rethinkafghanistan.com/).

After eight years of U.S. military engagement in Afghanistan, violence and instability still prevail. The film focuses on what military escalation will achieve in Afghanistan and how the war could further destabilize a nuclear-armed Pakistan. It examines the staggering costs of the war, which could easily exceed $1 trillion, and the civilian casualties caused by U.S. airstrikes in Afghanistan.

It questions the assumption that war can liberate Afghan women. Finally, former high-ranking CIA agents explain why there is no "victory" to be won in Afghanistan.

Hosted by Central Coast Workers Against War (a committee of the Monterey Bay Central Labor Council), Reel Work Labor Film Festival, SEIU Local 521 Social & Economic Justice Committee, Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.
