The Current State of Affairs in Afghanistan36:17

This article is more than 17 years old.

What is the current state of affairs in Afghanistan, and what should the US be doing about it? Afghanistan and the international community try to hold together a tenuous coalition despite significant conflict and chaos in Kabul and beyond.
