Event Details:

Dr. Sam Striker, who has been a NATO and U.S. Military civilian consultant in Afghanistan, will lead the discussion on The Prospects for Afghanistan and Pakistan. Major internal conflict has plagued Afghanistan for four decades. The U.S., for its part, has conducted military operations in the country continuously since 9/11. Will the current administration maintain the status quo; reversing the Obama administration's drawdown? Or will it withdraw completely? Does the U.S. face a no-win situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan?
