Embedded with the Taliban





Continuing on the theme of Afghanistan, Ghaith Abdul-Ahad wrote a series of articles for the Guardian based on his time spent with the Taliban there - another story that is all about confinement and the limitations of life, that also ties in with the theme of the embedded journalist. It's interesting to see a little Realpolitik creeping in with Part 3.

Part 1: The Taliban troop with an east London cab driver in its ranks


Part 2: Five days inside a Taliban jail

And here is a video Abdul-Ahad talking about his work.

Part3: Talking to the Taliban about life after occupation

And here is some of Abdul-Ahad's earlier work as an Unembedded journalist in Iraq. All the contributions here is worth checking out, especially Rita Leistner's.
