Calling All Afghanistan Bloggers! We Need a New Blog Fellow!

Posted by Derrick Crowe on January 12th, 2010

As you may know, I’ve been the Brave New Foundation / The Seminal Afghanistan blog fellow for the past several months. I’ve been absolutely thrilled to have a chance to get paid to write about this issue.  But like all good things, this fellowship has an end, and luckily the end of this fellowship has been triggered by a similarly exciting opportunity: I’ve just taken a position with Brave New Foundation as a political associate to work full-time on the Rethink Afghanistan campaign.

Before I say anything else, let me say thank you to thank the generous supporters of the fellowship, including Brave New Foundation, The Seminal at Firedoglake, CREDO Mobile and the folks over at Down with Tyranny! and Crooks and Liars. And, of course, you, my readers. Thank you.

The Afghanistan war, however, has not ended. It continues to drain the metaphorical blood of our economy, the very real blood of our young men and women in uniform. It’s killing more and more Afghans not party to the conflict, especially children. And despite what General McChrystal told ABC’s Diane Sawyer, the tide isn’t turning. In fact, it’s rolling in, with troop deaths, civilian deaths, costs and insurgent influence metastasizing in an ongoing human tragedy.

All this is to say that we still need an Afghanistan blog fellow. Interested?

We’ll be holding a contest to find the next blog fellow so we can keep the momentum building against this god-awful war. Later today, The Seminal’s Jason Rosembaum will announce the contest rules and application process. Keep an eye out for his post, and good luck!
