Ambassador James Dobbins and Professor Stephen Walt

The United States has been engaged in nation-building abroad for most of its recent history, but our actions in Afghanistan have caused the issue to garner international attention. With the War in Afghanistan entering its ninth year , many questions have arisen about the United States' presence there. Has the United States been successful in its most recent nation-building efforts? What should be the role of the United States in nation-building?

Ambassador James Dobbins and Professor Stephen Walt, author of "The Israel Lobby," will discuss the role of the US in Afghanistan, followed by audience Q&A.
