Letter From Afghanistan originally aired on WNYC’s The Next Big Thing in February, 2004
After a brief moment of geo-political fame, Afghanistan is far from center stage these days. But there are those, like attorney and Human Rights Watch researcher John Sifton, who keep constant vigil of the place. Sifton has been in and out of Afghanistan over the past several years. Last March, when war in Iraq was looming, he decided to take a tape recorder along. Produced by Amanda Aronczyk.
