About the Event

How can the Trump administration achieve a successful outcome in Afghanistan? Obama’s aim to complete America’s withdrawal has crashed against the realities of a resurgent Taliban, an emerging ISIS threat, hostile neighbors, and an Afghan government struggling against itself. President Trump needs a better approach. Join us as the panelists discuss and debate CNAS' new report "Focused Engagement: How the United States Should Modify Its Strategy Afghanistan."
