Robert Baer, Former CIA Operative: "Afghanistan Is Making Us Less Safe" (VIDEO)

Former CIA officer and author Robert Baer argues that "Afghanistan is a quagmire that everyone wants us in," in a new video segment from the Brave New Foundation's "Rethink Afghanistan" project.

Baer observes that Russia and Iran are seeking expansion and are happy that US troops are stuck in Afghanistan, whilst it is in Al Qaeda's interests for the US to be in a war where Muslim civilian casualties are unavoidable.

"Afghanistan is making us more unsafe," he says.
