Afghanistan - Fighting for Peace
First broadcast November 2006

Taleban in Afghanistan

In December 2001, Afghan leaders and the international community agreed a new deal for a post-Taleban controlled Afghanistan.

This deal was meant to ensure that the country would not be abandoned again. In this series, Lyse Doucet asks if that promise was kept.

Part One

Five years after the fall of the Taleban, Afghanistan has an elected President and Parliament.

But many Afghans are asking - why haven't billions of dollars in aid changed our lives more, why is our country still awash with guns and opium poppies, and why are the Taliban resurgent?

In the first programme, Afghanistan -fighting for peace, Lyse Doucet asks the men challenged with rebuilding the country whether things could have turned out differently.
