Deep State Radio: Afghanistan Special Report: Where Do We Go from Here and What Lessons Can We Draw?


August 16, 2021

The heart-rending scenes from Kabul Airport are now seared into our collective consciousness. The 20 year war in Afghanistan has clearly come to a disastrous end. While that may have been inevitable, the current chaos has nonetheless come as a shock. What should the administration do now? How to help those they can and manage the situation going forward? And what lessons can we draw after a two-decade long, misguided intervention in Afghanistan that will certainly go down as one of the great foreign policy failures in U.S. history? We discuss with Harvard’s Stephen Walt, AEI’s Kori Schake and Georgetown University’s Rosa Brooks. Don’t miss this special episode.

Hosted by noted author and commentator David Rothkopf and featuring regulars Rosa Brooks of Georgetown Law School,!54d27Kori Schake of Stanford University and David Sanger of the New York Times, the program will be the lively, smart dinner table conversation on the big issues of the day that you wish you were having…without the calories. Sometimes special guests will join the conversation and always the emphasis will be on providing the unvarnished perspectives others shy away from. Deep State Radio is the insider perspective on American national security and foreign policy that you can’t find anywhere else.
