Bill Moyers Journal

Season 13, Episode 24 of 53

With a leaked memo, delayed decisions and calls for more troops in Afghanistan, there's a growing public demand to know what direction President Obama has in mind for the war-torn country. Journal guest host Lynn Sherr sits down with Rory Stewart, who shares his vision for a sustainable policy that could benefit both the United States and Afghanistan, which he has called "the graveyard of predictions." Rory Stewart is director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University. In 2003 he was appointed as the Coalition Provisional Authority deputy governor of two provinces in Southern Iraq and in 2005, he moved to Afghanistan where he founded the Turquoise Mountain Foundation, an NGO dedicated to Afghan traditional crafts and the regeneration of the historic commercial center of Kabul. Then, Sherr talks with Kavita Ramdas, president and CEO of Global Fund for Women, on women's human rights initiatives around the world.
