“Afghanistan is currently suffering its most violent year since the 2001 U.S.-led intervention, according to an internal United Nations report that sharply contrasts with recent upbeat appraisals by President Bush and his Afghan counterpart, Hamid Karzai.” There were 525 security attacks on average every month during the first half of this year, up from an average of 425 incidents per month in 2006. Tomorrow, ThinkProgress will discuss this and other related issues with Said Tayeb Jawad, the Afghanistan Ambassador to the U.S. If you have questions you’d like us to ask him, please let us know in the comments section.
