Video of yesterday's demonstration in San Francisco on the 8th anniversary of the invasion of Afghanistan. Considering that I just saw Gen. McChrystal on TV talking about the "progress" we're bringing to Afghanistan, citing, among other things, education of young girls, the money quote in this video is Richard Becker noting that U.S. intervention in Afghanistan didn't begin eight years ago yesterday, but under the Carter administration, when the U.S. funded the mujahedin (including Osama bin Laden) in their (ultimately successful) attempt to overthrow the progressive government in power in Afghanistan, a government which was notable for, among other things, expanding educational opportunities for young girls.
