The Afghanistan Partnership (CUSAP) is an organization that believes in the strong ties between the U.S. and Afghan citizens. They want to see Afghanistan become a strong, prosperous nation again, and they recognize that America’s support is critical to this mission. As one of eight founders of the organization, Hamed Wardak works to create this partnership along with many others.
Certainly, to understand Afghanistan today, we must understand some basic and important facts about this country. Since the 19th century, the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union and the United States have all invaded Afghanistan. During the Soviet occupation, between 600,000 and 2 million Afghans were killed. During this time, 5 million Afghans were displaced, mostly to neighboring countries.
