What is the situation like in Afghanistan today? From 1997-2002, Sarah Chayes served as an overseas NPR correspondent, reporting from the Balkans and Paris. In 2002 she left her career as a journalist to run the nongovernmental aid organization, Afghans for Civil Society. Sarah Chayes will join us this hour to discuss the complex and often difficult cultural environment in post-Taliban Afghanistan as detailed in her book “The Punishment of Virtue: Inside Afghanistan after the Taliban” (Penguin, 2006).
