Theodore Eliot, former Ambassador to Afghanistan, Analyzes Afghan Survey in Press Democrat
October 28, 2009
More Afghans think their nation is headed in the right direction this year than was the case in 2008, according to the latest “Survey of the Afghan People” conducted by the Asia Foundation. In light of Afghanistan’s lingering problems, this sense of public optimism is both surprising and encouraging, writes Theodore Eliot, a former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan who is on the board of trustees of The Asia Foundation. Mr. Eliot examines the implications of The Asia Foundation survey in an October 27 op-ed article in the Press Democrat newspaper.
