Afghan Bibles Report Deemed 'Inappropriate'

Ad Feedback

A U.S. colonel serving in Afghanistan says an Al Jazeera documentary claiming American soldiers in the country were "urged to witness for Jesus" was taken out of context.

The well-known Arab network aired a video showing troops they say were "apparently preparing to convert Afghans to their faith."

Col. Greg Julian, however, called the report "irresponsible and inappropriate journalism."

CBN News Senior Reporter Wendy Griffith spoke with Megan Ortagus of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies about it.

Ortagus spent time with troops and chaplains in Afghanistan and agrees that the videos were misrepresented.
