Rory Stewart MP critiques strategy in Afghanistan

I thought I’d share this 20-minute video with you that I’ve just watched.  In it, Rory Stewart (MP for Penrith and the Border) criticises the current military strategy employed in Afghanistan, drawing on his personal experience of the country to suggest a better way of doing foreign policy – a more humble and honest approach, which seems to me to be eminently commendable.

The talk was given at a TED Global event in Edinburgh and I highly recommend having a look:
