Summary
Soon after taking office in 2009, President Obama ordered an additional 17,000 troops and another 30,000 at year's end in the hopes of stanching a rapidly deteriorating situation. Has the surge failed, or does it need time to take its course? Panelists debate the consequences of U.S. withdrawal, the degree of progress, and the chances of success of counterinsurgency. They debate whether the Taliban is a threat to the U.S. and discuss whether it is still a movement of ideological religious zealots. Was the Iraq surge a success? Are its lessons applicable in Afghanistan? They debate whether Afghan public opinion is on the side of the U.S. and the Karzai government
