JINSA National Leadership Webinar:

America’s Afghanistan Disaster

The rapid removal of all U.S. troops from Afghanistan has produced an unnecessarily disastrous end to America’s longest war, a foreign policy fiasco that left Americans and Afghan partners stranded. The tragic murders of thirteen U.S. service members and hundreds of Afghans in an ISIS-K terrorist attack proves that the counterterrorism mission remains unfinished. Going forward, the United States faces a far more dangerous environment in Afghanistan and across the Middle East.

Please join Amb. Eric Edelman and Gen (ret.) Charles Wald to assess the consequences of the Afghanistan withdrawal and how American policymakers can address the negative fallout for U.S. national security interests.

This webinar will be moderated by JINSA Senior Fellow John Hannah.

Thursday, September 2 – 2:00pm EDT
