Democracy Now! gets a response from London-based Asad Rehman, executive director of War on Want, on two major news developments: The United Kingdom — which will head the COP next year — is set to vote Thursday in what some are calling “the climate election."

Asad Rehman also speaks on an article that The Washington Post published of a confidential trove of documents that revealed how senior U.S. officials have lied throughout the 18-year war in Afghanistan, the longest war in U.S. history, while hiding evidence the war had become unwinnable.
