Dismantling an IED in Afghanistan – VICE on HBO Special Episode (Preview)

“Taliban Resurgence” is a special 30 minute episode of VICE. Hosted by correspondent and producer Ben Anderson, the special episode debuts on HBO Friday, May 5 at 11pm.

The Taliban now control more territory than they have at any point since they were overthrown in 2001. Yet the war in Afghanistan barely gets mentioned today, even as civilian and security deaths continue to rise. VICE correspondent Ben Anderson returns to the conflict he’s covered for 10 years, reuniting with several Afghans — an Army Major, a Policeman who dismantles IEDs and a family who were forced to fight to defend their home — for a shocking report that questions what America’s longest war has actually accomplished.
