Afghanistan: Graveyard of Empires
Saturdays, 1:00-2:30 Central
A critical 3-part analysis of America's longest war: • Ronald Reagan, the Soviet occupation, and the birth of jihad • Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden, the Taliban, and 9/11 • Four presidents — from invasion to exit: politics, lies, hopes, failures, and inevitability.
Along the way, we will explore the complex causes of the war in Afganistan, encounter the key players (nations and leaders), identify the most important turning points, and speculate about the implications of the conflict and its end on Afghanistan, on the region, and on the United States and its allies.
