The USF Center for the Pacific Rim presents
Afghanistan's Agony: An interview with Gen. Karl EIkenberry
Is Afghanistan a failed state or was it always just a confederation of tribes? The British and Russian military failed here, will the United States fail, too?
General Eikenberry commanded U.S.-led coalition forces there for President Bush and then became President Obama's ambassador in Kabul. What does he now think of this longest American war? He graduated from West Point, has graduate degrees from Harvard, Stanford, and Nanjing University, speaks Mandarin Chinese, and has published numerous articles on Asia Pacific security matters.
Dr. Patrick L. Hatcher, Kiriyama Distinguished Fellow, will conduct the interview. Free and open to the public. For reservations call (415) 422-6828.
Cosponsored by the USF Master's in International Studies Program, the USF Media Studies Department, and USF's ROTC Program.
