This past fall, an Afghan video journalist negotiated extraordinary access to a part of the country that has quietly reverted back to Taliban control. For close to two weeks, the journalist traveled a region that he found was now largely under control of the Taliban "shadow" government. He also tracked members of an insurgent cell working with members of Al Qaeda on a mission to sabotage a major U.S./NATO supply route.
Frontline/World "Behind Taliban Lines" follows the story on Tuesday, February 28 at 9:00 p.m. on KUED-Channel 7. As the new U.S. strategy focuses on the southern and eastern parts of the country, this film opens up a window onto a potential new front in the north, and sheds an important light on who's fighting the U.S. efforts in Afghanistan and why.
The episode also features a report from Pakistan on the country's troubled public school system which is among the worst in the world, despite years of U.S. aid.
