Two political cartoonists take an unembedded journey through Afghanistan in the summer of 2010

 

In October of 2010, political cartoonists Ted Rall and Matt Bors joined S.W. Conser in the KBOO studios for a live interview about the unembedded fact-finding trip they took through Afghanistan two months earlier.  Due to time constraints, many of their additional stories remained unaired for over a decade.

Now, with American forces back home and Afghanistan in the hands of the Taliban, we revisit Ted and Matt's travel tales, which range from fascinating to tragic to hair-raising to oddly hilarious.
