www.billgentile.comnnWhile embedded with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit (24thMEU) in Afghanistan in 2008, I made thie brief video of New York Times Photojournalist Tyler Hicks as he prepared and then transmitted images from one of the most unforgiving locales on earth to the Times photo desk in New York. At the time I met Tyler, I was working on a piece in Afghanistan's Helmand River Valley, along the border with Pakistan, for NOW on PBS. (Titled, "Afghanistan: The Forgotten War," the piece was nominated for a national Emmy Award.) I think the video of Tyler illustrates the technology that has revolutionized the craft of visual journalism. More importantly, it gives viewers a sense of how professional, articulate and dedicated some of the practitioners of our craft can be. Tyler Hicks is an extraordinarily talented photojournalist and a role model for all who want to devote themselves to the craft.nnI am an independent journalist and documentary filmmaker teaching at American University in Washington, DC. My career spans four decades, five continents and nearly every facet of journalism and mass communication, most especially visual communication, or visual storytelling. I am also the founder and director of American University’s Backpack Journalism Project, and author of the “Essential Video Journalism Field Manual.” In 2015, I engineered the School of Communication’s partnership with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and am the driving force behind that initiative.nnSee www.billgentile.com Less

Dominique de Villepin, ancien Premier ministre, était l'invité de Jean-Jacques Bourdin ce vendredi matin sur BFMTV-RMC. Il s'est exprimé sur les positions de la France et des Etats-Unis sur le problème de l'Etat islamique. Pour lui, la coalition formée par Obama, s'engageant vers une troisième guerre d'Irak, "est une décision absurde et dangereuse". "Il serait temps que les pays occidentaux tirent des leçons de l'Afghanistan" a-t-il souligné. Less

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Afghanistan inaugurated its first new president in a decade on Monday, swearing in technocrat Ashraf Ghani to head a power-sharing government just as the withdrawal of most foreign troops presents a crucial test. The first democratic handover of power in Afghanistan's history has been far from smooth: the deal for a unity government was cobbled together only after months of deadlock over a vote in which both Ghani and opponent Abdullah Abdullah claimed victory. The inauguration marks the end of an era with the departure of President Hamid Karzai, the only leader Afghans have known since a U.S.-led invasion in 2001 overthrew the Islamist Taliban that had given sanctuary to al Qaeda. Already-tight security was heightened around the capital Kabul ahead of the inauguration for fear Taliban insurgents might try to disrupt the ceremony or attack international dignitaries who flew in to attend.

Contract amendments on an Afghan $14.7 million storage facility that the US Army no longer needed is a “metaphor” for Washington’s war in Afghanistan, says a former CIA contractor, stressing the “possibility” that there might be something “underneath” the facility at Kandahar Air Field. Although the US Central Command acknowledged that a probe is needed to see why the amendments were authorized in 2013, Steven D. Kelley told Press TV Tuesday that the facility could just be a “distraction” for what lies underneath. The facility was originally supposed to be used by the US Defense Logistics Agency after its construction was finished by 2011, but it was delayed until two years later due to the contractor’s unsatisfactory performance, said the Stars and Stripes on Monday, citing a report by the special inspector general for Afghanistan reconstruction (SIGAR). Before the construction was over, the US Army had decided “that DLA would be leaving Kandahar and would not be using the warehouse facility,” SIGAR said. Despite the decision, the US Army Corps of Engineers made costly amendments to a new contract with a new company -- US-based construction firm Arkel International LLC -- for $844,526 to complete the project. What lies beneath? US projects that include such “ridiculous” amounts of money and large constructions could be dealing with “something going on underneath,” said the former CIA contractor. Kelly said the facility could be similar to some large ones inside the US, including the Denver airport, which “create access areas to underground facilities.” “The Kandahar airport would have certainly been a logical location for an underground facility.” A metaphor Apart from that, the complication could be the result of “corruption involving payoff”. The project contract was initially awarded to the Turkish YDA AFCON Joint Venture at a fixed cost of $13.5 million. This could have been “some sort of a carrot for Turkey from long ago.” “Even if it was constructed on time, (DLA) would not have been able to use it for more than two years,” Kelley said, calling the move “a waste of funds at the very least.”He noted that such a phenomenon is finally a result of marriage between capitalism and military industrial complex, yielding to a “metaphor” for the US mission in Afghanistan that followed a 2001 invasion.
