Interview: The Dutch in Afghanistan



18 February 2010 14:47

With the Dutch governing coalition close to disintegrating due to differences over Afghanistan policy, the Lowy Institute couldn't have picked a better time to host Dutch Major General Mart de Kruif, who until last November was NATO's military commander of coalition forces in southern Afghanistan.

It was a strictly in camera affair, but General de Kruif was kind enough to give me a few minutes of his time for an interview, during which he was surprisingly candid about machinations in The Hague, and what it all means for Afghanistan.
