She told a heartbreaking story of a friend in Logar, outside Kabul, who ran an orphanage funded by UNICEF and other international organizations. After the Taliban took over his village, they told him that he would be killed because he was accepting money from "infidel Westerners." Though the villagers whose children he took care of pleaded for him to stay, he felt unsafe and distrustful of government protection, and fled to Kabul with his family.

The history of Afghanistan that preceded the current war is something Loyn and fellow panelist Christina Lamb could address from personal experience: Loyn has been reporting there for the last 15 years, while Lamb has worked in the region as a foreign correspondent for the Sunday Times of London for even longer. In the wide ranging, 90 minute conversation that followed, Loyn and Lamb elucidated what in the current conflict is new, what is old and what is far more complex than the Western media typically allows.
looked after these kids for all these years. I don't know what's going to happen to them, but how can I go back and risk my family?"
"Eight years into the war; a new young president looking at a number of policy options, one of the key ones being to Afghanize the country; real concern over the Afghan leader who's in place and desire to replace him with another one; and the key policy priority option being more troops."

Loyn suggested that with a completely retooled strategy geared at creating a functional Afghan state: "There's a chance, just a small chance, that it might not be a complete defeat." Lamb was even less optimistic: "We've lost the consent of the Afghan people, and I think that is almost impossible now to get back."
