Exclusive to the Michael V. Hayden Center for Intelligence, Policy, and International Security, Masoud Andarabi, former Afghanistan Minister of Interior and Acting & Deputy Director of its intelligence agency, the National Directorate of Security, sits down with us to offer his perspective on the current state of play in his homeland. Just over a year since President Biden's decision to withdraw all US forces from Afghanistan, the US ended 20 years of active combat in the country and the Afghanistan government fell to the Taliban, in rapid succession. Michael Morell, former Acting & Deputy Director of CIA will discuss these historic events with Andarabi, look at the current situation inside Afghanistan, and discuss what role the United States and its Western allies should be playing going forward.
This Hayden Center presentation is being recorded for use on our website and social media.
The Hayden Center is located at George Mason University's Schar School of Policy and Government in Arlington, VA. General Hayden, our founder, and Mr. Morell, our senior fellow, have been distinguished visiting professors at Schar School for 12 and 3 years, respectively.
