Guest: Ambassador Ronald Neumann
CCWA hosted former U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan and current President of the American Academy of Diplomacy Ronald E. Neumann for a discussion on U.S. policy on Afghanistan.
In August 2017, the Trump Administration announced a policy shift increasing troops in Afghanistan and dropping the time limits of U.S. departure from the region. Is this really a new policy or just doubling down on 16 years of war without end? Ambassador Neumann explored the risks of staying in an unstable Afghanistan and whether or not American withdrawal is feasible.
