NPR’s Renee Montagne knows Afghanistan. She’s been in time and again since the U.S. invasion. Her latest big reporting trip was just last month. It was great reporting — voices and angles and intimacy that we often miss in the “big story” of the war.
There were midwives in the mountains. Coffee and terror in Kandahar. But she also got right to the hot issues.
The hottest right now is talking to the Taliban. It’s happening. The Afghan government, talking with the enemy, about a deal and about U.S. withdrawal.
