Afghanistan Elections

Abdullah Abdullah, a presidential candidate in Afghanistan, is accusing his main political rival, Ashraf Ghani, of cheating and conducting an election “coup.” Preliminary results give Ghani over 56 percent of the vote. Observers fear the impasse could lead to civil war. We’ll talk about the simmering tensions with Anand Gopal, fellow at the New America Foundation and author of the book No Good Men Among the Living: America, the Taliban, and the War through Afghan Eyes.
