Why the U.S. is still in Afghanistan more than 16 years after going to war

Hosted by

Steve Coll won a Pulitzer Prize for his book “Ghost Wars,” about secret American involvement in Pakistan and Afghanistan pre-9/11. His new book picks up the story. It covers how Pakistan secretly undermined the fight against the Taliban, and how three U.S. presidents have gotten the war in Afghanistan wrong.
