GAC’s Great Discussion Series: Prospects for Afghanistan and Pakistan, Thurs., May 25

Thurs., May 25, 6:30-8:30 p.m., Room 1010(m) Boardroom

*This is part of the Great Discussion series, which requires registration. See details below.

Major internal conflict has plagued Afghanistan for four decades. The U.S., for its part, has conducted military operations in the country nearly continuously since 9/11. Today, war with the Taliban persists, and tensions between the U.S. and Pakistan have gradually deteriorated. As his time in office drew to a close, President Obama limited further withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan. The incoming administration has a choice: will it maintain the status quo, completely reverse the Obama administration drawdown or withdraw completely? Does the U.S. face a no win situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan?

6:30 – Video background report (compliments printed briefing paper provided in advance)*
7:00 – Remarks by guest
