Massachusetts Peace Action and the UJP Afghanistan/Pakistan Task Force
present Matthew Hoh speaking on the failure of the U.S. war in Afghanistan.


Hoh is the director of the Afghanistan Study
Group<http://www.afghanistanstudygroup.org/>,
a dovish Beltway task force with more than 40 co-authors which released a
report in September 2010 calling for all but 30,000 troops to be withdrawn
by 2012.

Matthew Hoh earned a degree from Tufts University.  He served in the Marine
Corps, then as a Foreign Service officer in Afghanistan.  He resigned from
the State Department in 2009 with a devastating public critique of the
Administration's Afghanistan policy.

Maryam Shansab, an Afghan-American graduate student and member of the UJP
Afghanistan/Pakistan Task Force, will introduce Mr. Hoh and moderate the Q&A
session.

A donation of $5 is requested to offset costs, but no one will be turned
away.    Mr. Hoh will also speak to New Hampshire Peace Action
<http://justicewithpeace.org/node/1724>in
Concord on the 5th.
