US Policy on Afghanistan

As you know, Obama announced a new policy on Afghanistan today. Newspapers previewed this in Today's Papers, and their work was summarized by Slate.

It takes a lot more work to fully understand the Obama administration and effectively criticize their policy than say, the W admin. But still, where are the women? What about UN Security Council Resolution 1325? What about creating a sustainable model that can be supported by the local GDP rather than relying until the end of time on financial aid? Why has RAWA not updated their site since 2008?

How can we hear authentic voices of the people of Afghanistan, particularly women, as part of developing a critique of the US government's policy?
