Afghanistan has a CEO and his name is Zalmay Khalilzad. He is the man behind the mujahideen and "conducted risk analyses for Unocal" at the time that Unocal was engaging the Taliban on the construction of an oil and gas pipeline through Afghanistan. Sonali Kolhatkar, co-author of Bleeding Afghanistan: Washington, Warlords, and the Propaganda of Silence, and co-director of Afghan Women's Mission, breaks this story WIDE OPEN in her new book with James Ingalls. Read the excerpt here and don't stop there! May 21st is the National Media Day on Afghanistan and CODEPINK is working with United for Peace and Justice member groups around the country to get stories about Afghanistan into the media and into the minds and hearts of the American public. We have concrete and creative steps you can take (if you have 2 minutes or 2 hours), talking points and blogs, interviews and more!
