The last U.S. plane departed Afghanistan on Aug. 30, 2021, ending America’s war there. From the attacks of 9/11 through operations in Afghanistan and finally in the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces, personnel and allies, there are questions to be asked and lessons to be learned. Sponsored by the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy, this discussion will feature Dr. Hayat Alvi from the U.S. Naval War College and Dr. Mark Jacobson from Syracuse University, who will reflect on the conflict and the legacy of America's longest war.
