Today an extremely powerful documentary about the end of the war in Afghanistan hit the web. Working with journalist Ben Anderson, who's worked out of Afghanistan for the last six year, Vice captured an intimate, informative look at the Afghan government and its security forces during the United States' troop withdrawal.
Ben Anderson went to Afghanistan in 2007 to make a film about the vicious fighting between underequipped British forces and the Taliban in Helmand, the country's most violent province. He didn't plan on staying for six years. But we're glad he did, because now we have This Is What Winning Looks Like, a disturbing new documentary about the ineptitude, drug abuse, sexual misconduct, and corruption of the Afghan government and its security forces as well as the role of US Marines during the troop withdrawal.
First, watch the trailer. Then head over to Vice to watch the whole documentary.
