Afghanistan Takes Another Shot at Democracy

Hosted by

In more than a fourth of  Afghanistan, voters might be risking their lives by participating in next week's national election. But the Obama Administration is hoping the outcome will lead to better governance. On the rebroadcast of today's To the Point, we look at the prospects for a weakened President Hamid Karzai and the realities of corruption, drug dealing and threats from the Taliban.

Note: During KCRW’s Summer Sign-up, we are airing the complete rebroadcast of today’s To the Point in place of Which Way, LA?.
