Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, has become the frontline for war between Taliban insurgents and western troops. In this interview, two failed suicide bombers, Abdul Quboshi and Farman Ullah, discuss how they got involved with the Taliban. The young boys explain that they were at school when the Taliban came to talk with them, claiming that it was their religious duty under Jihad to become suicide bombers and that they would be immediately taken to “paradise” once they followed through. They talk about the explosives that were strapped to their vests and their mission of killing a local Afghan governor. Hekmat Karzai, an expert on the Taliban’s ability to brainwash their participants, explains how they use the religious obligation of Jihad to justify war and recruit suicide bombers.
