New Afghanistan Strategy: The Military Dimension

August 22, 2017

Episode Notes:

Jason Dempsey, a U.S. Army veteran with on-the-ground experience in Afghanistan, reacted to President Donald Trump's new strategy for the war in Afghanistan. While details were scant in the president's speech, there is a fair amount information out there in the public sphere on how the military approach will change, and Dempsey - now a senior adjunct fellow at the Center for a New American Security - doesn't like what he is seeing.
