Bundeswehr in Afghanistan: Mission Augen zu und durch

< 1 min

Spiegel online, 12 November 2013

The website of the influential German weekly political magazine also picks up Philipp Münch’s AAN report about the impact of the international intervention on Afghan power structures, with the case studies of Kunduz and Badakhshan. The magazine writes – not fully accurately – that the author “accuses the Bundeswehr that, with its reluctant approach, has helped to strengthen the warlords”. The policy is set by the government not the army, the latter only was made the main implementer – another mistake.
