The Alfred P Murrah building in Oklahoma City was bombed at 9.01 in the morning, as a normal working day on the Great Plains was getting under way â?? not by Islamic fundamentalists plotting in Afghan caves, but by a paramilitary unit of Americans who called themselves "patriots", led by a former serviceman and 1991 Gulf war veteran, Timothy McVeigh. McVeigh was executed in 2001, and his principal accomplice, Terry Nichols, is serving life.
Early the next morning we were in a Chinook, hugging the contours of the rocky peaks and then sprinting across the landing zone to avoid getting shot at. I found big, brash 27-year-old Captain Dan Kearney, dubbed the Lord of the Korengal Valley, in the well-equipped medic's tent. On the bed sat a boy with blood-stained eyes, his face covered in gashes. He wouldn't or couldn't talk. The villagers said he was wounded by the American bomb that also killed two women. Two more women were wounded and outside the gate, but the villagers wouldn't let them be treated because the medic was a man. The women could die, said the medic. The men still refused. "Welcome to my life," said Dan. Taliban attack his soldiers from the villages. He retaliates. Afghan women and children die.
"Pull out his eyes, apologise; apologise, pull out his eyes". The old, taunting rhyme bounced in my head as I looked into the eyes of an Afghan woman lying limp and frightened on a hospital bed down the valley in Kunar's capital. Attached to her was a nursing child. The bomb had landed on her house, killing her husband. Her eyes moved behind me, seemed to tour the room; then, seeing no salvation, they lost focus. There were other wounded women in the beds. One had lost her husband a year ago in a feud, and now her teenage son had been killed in the bombing. She was asking the doctor, me, anyone who'd listen, "Who will take care of me?" The doctor translated for them and then pursued me down the hall, urging me to tell the Americans to please stop bombing their villages. "It's too much, it's too much," he said. He was young, with a creased, tired face and was craning his head to catch up with me. "Please tell them," he said. "They might listen to you. They won't listen to us."
I settled into life with the soldiers, sharing their bunkers, barns, cots, and spine-breaking 4am hikes. I scavenged their care packages for chicken-noodle soup and shampoo. One night, Lynsey and I were deep inside the back of a Humvee with two young, insecure intelligence officers at the helm as we set off for an all-night mission to capture Taliban. A truckload of Afghan special forces in our convoy had just driven over a cliff.
When I had boarded the helicopter to come back to the Korengal, I armed myself with the heroic tales of pregnant women I'd known. There was my friend Ayub's mother, who was harvesting tobacco when she delivered the last of her eight children in Halabja. And the Bosnian woman who was nine months pregnant when the militias attacked her town. As she fled through the mountains, mortars exploding around her, she went into labour. A villager scooped her up in a wheelbarrow, and there she gave birth to her son. Maybe stories are nourishment. Because as bad as it got â?? like at the end of an 18-hour patrol, when I ended up on the medics' trolley suffering from dehydration, and felt my body sucking hungrily on the juices of two IV drips â?? I compared my situation with the wheelbarrow or the Afghan women, and I couldn't really complain.
Death in the Korengal had many arrangements. A girl died of shrapnel wounds, maybe American shrapnel, maybe insurgents'. Her father gave her bracelets to a soldier who'd tried to save her. A sergeant died of a sniper's bullet because he was giving visitors a tour. A US Marine training Afghan soldiers died in an ambush defending Afghan soldiers. Soldiers had to kill their dogs. (The higher-ups figured they had diseases.) Death was a daily dialogue. One night I watched a flea bouncing on my distended belly. I drifted off and dreamt that the baby was in a rubbery goat-skinned wine sack, suffocating and shrinking. The night before I'd dreamt she was a dwarfed donkey. Some nights, after a day of jets ripping the land apart with 2,000lb bombs, and insurgents crashing mortars into the base, I'd put earphones on my stomach, hoping the vibrations of Horowitz playing Mozart's B-flat sonatas would soothe her. And every night she soothed me against despair and mortality.
3am. TWO NIGHTS LATER. We're hiking above the tree line in the dark, and I can't figure out how to work my night-vision goggles, and I'm freezing and everything's throbbing in pain, and I can see no reason to be searching abandoned Afghan summer cottages. I have an epiphany. Up ahead, I can make out a boulder. As soon as I reach it, I'll just slip behind, lie down, and go to sleep. I have another epiphany: if I stop moving I'll freeze. Then suddenly the line's stopped. There's a soldier worse off than me. "Get the fuck up, Spino," shouts an officer. "Get the fuck up, fucking Spino." I love you, Spino. I lie down on my pack, and now the throbbing makes me cry, and if I don't pee, I'm going to explode. I start counting the stars.
Four Afghan soldiers began dragging his body through the dried leaves and branches, and Raeon, a fellow scout, lost it on them, me, the world. He shoved the Afghans aside and lofted Rougle up over his shoulder, fireman-style, drenching his back in Rougle's insides. I turned away. My tape recorder stopped working, and I was forced to take notes. The job is the only thing that saves you.
finally I left the soldiers and the mountains, though not before telling Dan what he already knew â?? that I was six months pregnant. It wasn't until I was back in civilian life in Kabul that I began to worry. I'd contracted some Afghan illness. "Time for you to go home," wrote my brother. "You are not built like Afghan women. We are from shtetl, not mountain people." But I was stubborn. My friend Najib, a doctor and journalist, took my blood pressure with a kit he'd ordered from the internet, and it read 70 over 40. "I'd be dead, Najib." "Well, you look horrible, and it's really low." What was worse, I couldn't feel the baby's flutters any more. He called a friend with a sonogram machine.
It was raining, cold, dark, and electricity was out in much of the city. We entered an old building cratered by Cold War rockets. Najib pushed me past the patients waiting in the blacked-out hallway. I was rushed into a room and greeted by a tall, smiling Afghan doctor who'd studied in Indiana. By the time I was on my back, shirt up, a guy began banging on the door and shouting: why the hell did the foreigner cut the line? I was sure he was going to crash through the door, exposing me to the crowd. I wondered how they could be so patient with us â?? we'd caused bombings, kidnappings, massive rent inflation, and we threw our weight around in big SUVs, cutting corners, queues, and laws, just like the warlords.
