International Conference For a Self-Determined Afghanistan Bonn,Germany, December 4, 2011 Joseph Gerson*
I want to thank the conference organizers for the privilege of joining you. It has been ten years since 9-11, when believe it or not, Secretary of War Donald Rumsfeld told President Bush that invadingAfghanistanwould violate international law, and Bush the Lesser responded that he wanted to “kick some ass.”

Presentation by Herbert Docena
Greetings. I would like to thank the organizers for convening this timely conference.
Most of you know that this year marks the tenth anniversary of 9-11 and the US-led invasion of Afghanistan. How many among you know, however, that, in three months, we will also be marking the tenth year of the return of US military forces to the Philippines?
