I'm going to Afghanistan the second week in August for one month.
I'll be traveling with cartoonists Ted Rall
and Steven Cloud
, both of whom have traveled to the area before - extensively in Ted's case. We'll be on our own, not embedded with the US military. Ted has some details about where we'll be going over on his blog
America has been at war in Afghanistan my entire adult life. I started drawing political cartoons as a direct result of this country's reaction to the events of 9/11. It's time for me to get out from behind the drawing table and see it for myself.
