Antonia Juhasz, fellow at the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California, Berkeley, wrote in her recent report for The Atlantic:
My journey has uncovered a largely hidden battle being waged for control of Afghanistan's fossil fuel resources. The Afghan and US governments hope these resources will attract international oil companies and raise badly needed income. The Taliban appear increasingly bent on denying the fruits of the sector to their rivals, be they local, national, or international.
Juhasz joins The Daily Circuit Friday, Jan. 18 to discuss her reporting on the conflict over Afghanistan's developing oil and gas sector.
