Afghanistan Seven Years Later

Featuring Said T. Jawad, Akbar Ahmed, Caroline Wadhams, Ted Galen Carpenter, & Malou Innocent
Seven years after the invasion of Afghanistan, coalition troops are no closer to winning the war against the Taliban.

Will a heavier combat presence, endorsed by President-elect Barack Obama, provide a solution or contribute to the widening problem? Please join us for an in-depth discussion on this critical and turbulent region, and what the next administration can do to save this deteriorating mission.
