Mission Accomplished? The Secrets Of Helmand

Brutal discoveries facing the ill-prepared Afghan forces

Very soon, Afghan forces will finally be in full control of all Afghanistan as ISAF forces are accelerating their withdrawal. When reporter Ben Anderson joins some of the Allied troops, he finds the Afghan forces poorly trained, lacking resources, and uncovers evidence of the police committing horrible crimes themselves…and right under our Allied noses. We’ve gotten ourselves into this mess, now how will we help get them out? Following this screening of this documentary for BBC Panorama, there’ll be a panel discussion with the director and former BBC World Service Bureau Chief and Editor in Kabul (Ben Anderson), and others. So get your tough question thinking caps on, people! General admission. Please arrive on time.
