The Afghanistan War Assessment
December 17, 2010
The White House released a year assessment on the war in Afghanistan. Â In a press briefing yesterday, President Obama said that â€śwe are on track to achieve our goals.â€ťÂ However, the assessment also said that the progress was â€śfragileâ€ť and â€śreversible,â€ť and pointed to issues like corruption in the Afghan government and terrorist safe havens in Pakistan as significant obstacles. Â Weâ€™ll get two views on the assessment, and the Obama strategy in Afghanistan.Â Our guests are BILL ROGGIO, managing editor of The Long War Journal, and MICHAEL HANNA, a fellow at the Century Foundation.Â Weâ€™ll also talk with RACHEL REID, Human Rights Watchâ€™s Afghanistan researcher, about how the war is affecting womenâ€™s rights.
