Eight Years in Afghanistan, the 'Graveyard of Empires'


The United States has been in Afghanistan for eight years. The end of our engagement there is not in sight. Ted Galen Carpenter, Malou Innocent and David Rittgers take down myths associated with the war in Afghanistan and offer solutions to American involvement there. Ted Galen Carpenter and Malou Innocent are authors of a new paper, Escaping the Graveyard of Empires: A Strategy to Exit Afghanistan.
