WACA's Cover to Cover webinar on Tuesday, August 31 at 2:00 PM ET, features Craig Whitlock, an investigative reporter for The Washington Post.
The Afghanistan Papers contains startling revelation after revelation from people who played a direct role in the war, from leaders in the White House and the Pentagon to soldiers and aid workers on the front lines. In unvarnished language, they admit that the US government’s strategies were a mess, the statistics were distorted, the nation-building project was a colossal failure, and that drugs and corruption gained a stranglehold over their allies in the Afghan government.
