The Mirror Test
Kael Weston talked about his book, The Mirror Test: America at War in Iraq and Afghanistan, about America’s role in the world after September 11, 2001. In his book, Mr. Weston tells the stories of people touched by the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, from college students, generals, former Taliban fighters and NATO allies, to Iraqi truck drivers, imams, ambassadors, city councils, and Afghan school teachers. The “mirror test” is described as the moment in which a soldier suffering from severe facial wounds views the wound for the first time. close
