Post Script: A Personal Note about the Kabul Media Video Footage
During each of my trips to Afghanistan since 2001, the people were jubilant. Many of them expressed their relief for being free from the Taliban.
They were happy after many years of war (Soviet invasion, mujahadeen fighting with Russians, warlords turning on one another, no government, then the Taliban).
A lot of the people on the streets of Kabul during my trips were happy and it shows in the video footage. My ability to speak the Dari language with the common people and my knowledge and respect for their culture helped me capture some unique footage.
The problems of Afghanistan, such as war damage and poverty, are seen in the footage too. But I tried to focus on the positive aspects of the people and their hope for the future.
Some of the footage depicts the deaf and blind and the help and education they are receiving from the international aid community. Much more of this type of footage will be made available in the future.
On September 9, 2003 I was escorted into the Kabul stadium as the Afghan government commemorated the second anniversary of the martyrdom of Ahmad Shah Masood. Afghan security pushed away the crowds for me and gave me free access to the stadium grounds to walk among the Afghan military while the speeches were being made. Some of the footage in the library is from that event.
