To watch the full interview with Kathy Kelly on Democracy Now!, visit http://owl.li/hGkru. As President Obama announces plans to withdraw another 34,000 troops from Afghanistan, longtime peace activist Kathy Kelly says his plan will still sadle Afghans with “ongoing war.” Kelly, the co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, has just returned from her latest trip Afghanistan. She was speaking to Democracy Now! just hours after a U.S. air strike in the Afghan province of Kunar killed 10 civilians.
