MEHWAR: New Report On Afghan War Discussed
Military and civilian leaders ignored a lot in both the planning and the ensuing of the 18 years of fighting in Afghanistan, according to a report by Center for Strategic and International Studies.
That’s one of a number of findings that the Center for Strategic and International Studies report “Tell me how this ends: Military Advice, Strategic Goals and the ‘Forever War’ in Afghanistan,” and the subsequent panel held Wednesday, according to Military Times.
The eventual picture of US involvement in Afghanistan should look something like what’s happening now in Somalia or Libya, a retired Army lieutenant general who sat on a panel discussing the report said.
In this episode of Mehwar, host Yaser Abrar discusses the topic with Moqaddam Amin, a military affairs analyst, and Edris Rahmani, an international affairs analyst.
