Carmela Baranowska’s “Taliban Country” is a rare and damning insight into what U.S. forces are doing in remote Afghanistan. For three weeks, Carmela was embedded with the U.S. Marines in their remote forward operating base.
Suspicious of what was really happening,
Carmela later became the only person in 2004 to return and independently cover this area. Carmela obtained disturbing testimony from local villagers, some of which echo the abuse documented at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Naval Base. The broadcast of the documentary on SBS television has led to two U.S. military investigations.
