For the last 20 years, the United States has been at war with the Taliban in Afghanistan, initially in response to the attacks of 9/11. America’s swift and turbulent withdrawal from the country has placed Afghanistan squarely in the hands of the Taliban as troops scrambled against an August 31 deadline to get U.S. citizens and Afghan allies out of the country.

How do we make sense of these recent events and those that precipitated them? What have we learned? And what will be the impact on U.S. foreign policy and affairs going forward? In this event, hosted by the Korbel School, a panel of experts weigh in on how we got here, and what the future may hold.
