America’s shame? Tell me I’ve misinterpreted plight of forgotten translators

Filed under: foreign,News,politics — - @ 11:01 pm

Let me see if I have this straight: the USA’s southern border is looking rather more porous to immigrants than many Americans would like. Yet if you put your life on the line for Uncle Sam in Afghanistan, you’re pounding  at a locked door…?

“Afghan interpreters who helped American soldiers through more than a decade of combat are being left to die at the hands of the Taliban, as detailed in a new, multi-part documentary by Ben Anderson of Vice News

For all Gaza is dominating the headlines, I would suggest that this, too, is a story that shouldn’t be allowed to go away.
