Jonathan Cristol, author of The United States and Taliban before and after 9/11, discusses the status of the latest talks between the U.S. government and the Taliban, in an effort to end the decades-long war in Afghanistan. Are women's rights being addressed? Are neighboring countries' interests being taken into account? And can we trust the Trump administration in this tense geopolitical environment?
This talk references Cristol's November 2018 Global Ethics Weekly podcast on his book and the talks between the Taliban and the United States in the 1990s. For more, go to Cristol's website or follow him on Twitter.
