Matthew Hoh's letter of resignation over Afghan War

Woody Powell, of Veterans for Peace, forwarded Matthew Hoh's resignation letter. Woody says:
This is the most authoritative, comprehensive evaluation of our presence in Afghanistan I have seen to date. It not only nails the current situation to the mast, but puts it in a historic context that should make everyone reflect deeply on the underlying policies and policy failures that are bankrupting our country and making it a pariah to the rest of the world.

The former Foreign Service officer and former Marine Corps captain who last month became the first U.S. official known to resign in protest over the Afghan war, was online Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 1 p.m. ET to discuss the reasons why he thought the war "wasn't worth the fight."
