Afghanistan and Pakistan are inextricably linked by a spreading Islamic insurgency. Ambushes, daring militant offensives, and targeted assassinations have risen sharply in Afghanistan, while suicide attacks and “Talibanization” are sweeping through Pakistan’s settled areas at an alarming rate. Can the U.S. win a decisive victory in the Afghanistan-Pakistan theater? Is there a viable exit strategy? Please join Cato scholars Malou Innocent, who recently spent several weeks in Pakistan assessing the region’s deteriorating condition, and Ted Galen Carpenter to discuss Afghanistan’s meltdown, Pakistan’s worsening situation, and the future of U.S. policy in this turbulent and critical region.
