Six Myths About Afghanistan with Erik Jensen

October 28, 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

The withdrawal from Afghanistan over the last several weeks has elicited an unprecedented volume of “hot-takes,” journalistic provocation based on thin information. Everyone seems to have an opinion about the withdrawal whether they could identify Afghanistan on a map or not. And, predictably, the withdrawal sparked vigorous partisan finger-pointing. In this polemic hot-house, Jensen will identify at least six widely held myths that underlie public perceptions of the war in Afghanistan and the urge of many politicians to justify US withdrawal from the country unconditionally.
