Hall, Jonathon, 22, Pfc. Army, 101st Airborne: "On the day I viewed Robert
Greenwald's powerful documentary, The New York Times published the name
of the 1013th U.S. serviceperson killed in Afghanistan. The number has
increased geometrically since President Obama's surge. With the clarity and dramatic flair of Tom Paine's Common Sense,
Greenwald demands that we rethink all our assumptions about the Bush/Obama military strategy."

Using insights elicited from Afghani and American activists, politicians, journalists, and academic experts, Rethink Afghanistan
challenges every government assumption about the war. From the efficiency of military action  the high number of civilian
deaths alienates the population and creates new anti-U.S. recruits  to the links between the Taliban and al Queda  to the
idea that theU.S. invasion has liberated Afghani women  traditional oppression has been magnified by the ravages of war. In
the end, the film convincingly argues that the United States must rethink its reliance on military power as a way to combat
terrorists and seek developmental, educational and health related solutions. Marty Haas (USA, 2009, 62 min., color)
