Tien jaar oorlog in Afghanistan

October 7, 2011 - The decade-long U.S.-led war in Afghanistan has left the country with a corrupt government and dim prospects for peace. The campaign launched in October 2001 to root out Osama bin Laden and the terror network behind the 9/11 attacks, and to topple the Taliban government that gave them safe haven, has to date claimed the lives of an estimated 33,600 Afghans and insurgents, plus 2,700 coalition troops.
