Deep Dish on Global Affairs Podcast


After weeks of finger-pointing and accusations about the catastrophic U.S. retreat from Afghanistan, this episode of Deep Dish is taking a step back to ask some big-picture questions. What if the problem isn't the exit, but the strategy that started the intervention in the first place: counterinsurgency? US Naval War College author Jacqueline Hazelton joins Deep Dish to explain what went wrong and why the United States is doomed to repeat its mistakes if it doesn't shift strategies.
