I facepalmed when I read a recent Foreign Policy interview with Mohammad Farid Hamidi, the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission’s representative at the Working Group on Conflict-Related Detention.
Why did I facepalm? This:
Though he wasn’t consulted for either the Stone Review or Gen. McChrystal’s assessment, Mohammad Farid Hamidi, the Commission’s representative at the Working Group on Conflict-Related Detentions in Afghanistan, had some additional insights that U.S. reviews should have included.
Seriously? Really? The AIHRC was not consulted?
If we’re not going to listen to Afghans like Hamidi at this late hour…I just don’t know.
