Episode Notes:

Afghanistan remains in the news again this week. In an interview aired Wednesday, former President George Bush claimed that the U.S. withdrawal was a “mistake” that would have “unbelievably bad” consequences.

Dr. Ashley Jackson — the co-director of the Center for the Study of Armed Groups at the London-based Overseas Development Institute and author of Negotiating Survival: Civil-Insurgent Relations in Afghanistan — joins the Warcast to discuss the situation on the ground in Afghanistan.
