This month we mark the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, which launched America's invasion of Afghanistan and what became the longest war in U.S. history.

Renowned investigative journalist and Sonoma County resident Lowell Bergman is one of the executive producers on a hit new Netflix documentary series, Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror. It meticulously documents what led up to 9/11 and what has happened since—illuminating for many how and why the US came to suddenly leave Afghanistan in August 2021 and what that departure now means for all of us.

Bergman is a mentor to the KRCB newsroom and we joined him in interviewing some key people featured in the Netflix docuseries. Here’s our recent conversation with Afghan women's rights activist and politician Fawzia Koofi.


That was Afghan women's rights activist and politician Fawzia Koofi, speaking with Lowell Bergman and KRCB's Greta Mart. On Wednesday, Sept. 29, Bergman is moderating—and Koofi is participating in—a panel discussion for Cal Performances that focuses on the filmmakers and key participants of the Turning Point docuseries. The livestreamed event is free and open to the public.
