    Massachusetts Peace Action and the UJP Afghanistan/Pakistan Task Force present Matthew Hoh speaking on the failure of the U.S. war in Afghanistan.

    Hoh is the director of the Afghanistan Study Group, a Washington, DC task force with more than 40 co-authors which released a report in September 2010 calling for all but 30,000 troops to be withdrawn by 2012.

    Matthew Hoh earned a degree from Tufts University. He served in the Marine Corps, then as a Foreign Service officer in Afghanistan. He resigned from the State Department in 2009 with a devastating public critique of the Administration's Afghanistan policy.

    A donation of $5 is requested to offset costs, but no one will be turned away. Mr. Hoh will also speak to New Hampshire Peace Action in Concord on the 5th.
