Interesting

This is a great way for everyone who doesn't know what's going on in Afghanistan to understand a little more and actually learn about it.

Politically biased

The museum in Kabul was in a great shape during the Russian invasion, contrary to the statement of this gentleman. The credit for restoration after the Taliban goes to the caretakers of the museum who saved the antique objects from some westerners who were ready to pay big bucks for them, so they can resell them in the west!
So many westerners were caught red handed trying to smuggle Afghan cultural heritage out of the country.
The reason why I say this gentleman is politically biased is that he undermines the fact that we actually invaded Afghanistan without even approval from our congress let alone the UN.
