Dear Reader,

Thank you for checking out the APPRO Blog!


We’ve launched this blog for two reasons:

First, we’re going to weigh in on topics related to Afghanistan that have either been misunderstood, misrepresented, or completely ignored. Since our founding in late 2007 we have found more than enough examples of all three. Our periodic blogs are an attempt to provide a balance. Second, we want to share what we know with you. We are also very interested in hearing from you about what we do, how we do it, and how we should do it. Please send us your questions and comments. I look forward to hearing from you.


Happy Reading!
