The battle for Afghan hearts and minds

"Why are the Americans in our land? What can I say, we are powerless."

The words of an Afghan farmer, Khan Mohmad, who fled war-torn Helmand province, leaving his land behind and finding refuge in a dreary camp on the outskirts of Kabul.

Khan Mohmad along with thousands of other displaced Afghans now squat in makeshift clay huts, using any bits of trash to make a home.

He is a striking man. His eyes lined with coal and his dirty blonde hair wrapped in a grey-black turban as he speaks in a soft but frustrated tone.
