Ask ISAF: Brigadier General Blanchette answers your questions

KABUL, Afghanistan — On Monday we launched a new initiative to allow those of you base here in Afghanistan and those abroad to ask questions of an ISAF General.

This week, Brigadier General Richard Blanchette, the ISAF spokesperson, has answered questions from KUNA of Pakistan and The Globe and Mail of Canada.

This episode features questions about ISAF tactics to avoid civilian casualties, ISAF efforts to defeat the insurgency and ISAF’s role in counter narcotics.

A video of the interview is available for download in broadcast quality from the link below.

We look forward to receiving your questions for next week’s ‘Ask ISAF’, the subject of which will be announced next Monday.
