Enemy Within - S1E1: Caught In The Crossfire
Can Afghanistan's voices of reason rise from the ashes? An intimate look at journalists, soldiers and civilians caught in the crossfire of America's longest war.
Enemy Within is a two-part documentary series filmed from the front line of the war in Afghanistan. From Kabul to Ghazni, Channel NewsAsia obtained rare access into Taliban badlands to understand why the Taliban are gaining control of more territory 18 years since America invaded the country. On this journey, we embed with the Afghanistan Army on an operation against the Taliban and and investigate why they are fast losing soldiers to conflict and attrition. We also meet brave journalists and artistes who continue to fight for peace. Along the way, we speak to key stakeholders like former President Hamid Karzai who unveils his solution for a democratic, peaceful Afghanistan. But is this too little, too late, for a country that has failed to protect thousands of lives that have already been lost in a conflict that continues to get worse with every passing day?
