Westporter in Afghanistan Disputes U.S. Official Who Resigned

In a letter to the Washington Post today, a Westporter overseeing a legal education program in Kabul, Afghanistan disputed a top U.S. Foreign Service officer who resigned in protest over the Afghan war.

“I agree with many of former Foreign Service officer Matthew Hoh’s criticisms of the international effort in Afghanistan, particularly our failures to demand that the Afghan government address corruption and, relatedly, to give non-ideological insurgents incentives to stop planting roadside bombs,” wrote Benjamin Joseloff, 27.

“That said, I don’t agree with Mr. Hoh that there is nothing here worth fighting for.”

Joseloff, son of Westport First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff, is a 2000 Staples High School graduate and 2008 graduate of Stanford Law School. After completing a one-year federal clerkship, he has been in the Afghan capital since September as a fellow at the Afghanistan Legal Education Project.
