Afghanistan Expels NYT Correspondent Matt Rosenberg

Hosted by

Matthew Rosenberg, expelled yesterday from Afghanistan as a “spy” accused of trying to “create panic and disruption.” His article began: “A coterie of powerful Afghan government ministers and officials with strong ties to the security forces are threatening to seize power if an election impasse that has paralyzed the country is not resolved soon.”  President Karzai’s office calls the work “meant to create panic and disruption in peoples’ minds, and provide the basis for other spying purposes.”  Matt Rosenberg joined us from Dubai.
