Hamed Wardak and Understanding US-Afghan Relations

Hamed Wardak is an Afghan who makes extensive efforts to improve relations between those in his country and America.  So it might be of interest to Mr. Wardak to check out the new Washington D.C. photography exhibition entitled “In Small Things Remembered:  The Early Years of U.S.-Afghan Relations.”  This exhibition is a depiction of “the century-long history of political, cultural, and economic relations between the United States and Afghanistan.”
The exhibition was set up by the Meridian International Center and presents documents and photos which show friendships that begun many years ago between Americans and Afghans.  This includes collaboration between the two with regards to “economic development projects, American artists and Afghan students, visits by political leaders, and community-based development and assistance projects.”
Hamed Wardak is one of the eight founders of the CUASP (Campaign for a US-Afghanistan Partnership).  The vision of the organization is to “achieve sustainable security and prosperity in Afghanistan.”
