"Obama's War"

My only immediate criticism of "Obama's War" was the lack of mention of the current status of women in Afghanistan -- and what the U.S. troop presence means for those women.

I thought the documentary was excellent. However, it was chilling to see the difficult decisions and sacrifices that must be made to have even an outside chance of a stable Afghanistan.
