Rajiv Chandrasekaran on the War for Afghanistan
Thursday, June 28, 2012
Washington Post correspondent Rajiv Chandrasekaran discusses America’s troubled war in Afghanistan. His new book Little America: The War Within the War for Afghanistan is an account of the surge, which he argues was sabotaged not only by Afghan and Pakistani malfeasance but by infighting and incompetence within the American government. Chandrasekaran examines the challenges of U.S. intervention there, and gives an eye-opening look at the complex relationship between America and Afghanistan.
