Afghanistan. Afghanistan. Afghanistan. That seems to be the only thing in the news nowadays. And, for good reason. Today we will explore the history of the US involvement in Afghanistan, what exactly went wrong, whether the withdrawal could have been handled better, and what this all means for America’s foreign policy in the long term. To help answer these questions, we are delighted to have Professor Hal Brands back on the podcast.
Professor Brands is the Henry A. Kissinger Distinguished Professor of Global Affairs at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. He is also a Senior Fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, where he studies US foreign policy and defense strategy. Professor Brands has written extensively about Afghanistan and US foreign policy in his regular Bloomberg column, so we hope that you enjoy this episode of the Hopkins Podcast on Foreign Affairs.
