The Next Phase of America’s War in Afghanistan

June 20, 2017

Episode Notes:

What will the Trump administration's strategy for Afghanistan look like? Is it too military-centric? Are we too focused on troop numbers at the expense of a broader political conversation? What role can talks play with Afghanistan's neighbors and even the Taliban? Are jihadist groups once again on the rise in this troubled country? Ioannis "Gianni" Koskinas, who has been closely involved with Afghan affairs for years, takes on these questions and more. Gianni is a Senior Fellow with the International Security Program at New America.
