Strategika Podcast: Kimberly Kagan on The Perils of Abandoning Afghanistan

 

In the latest installment of the Strategika podcast for the Hoover Institution, I spoke with Kimberly Kagan, founder and president of the Institute for the Study of War, about how the situation in Afghanistan will play out once America leaves.

Dr. Kagan, who spent 15 months in Kabul working with General David Petraeus and General John Allen, is concerned that America runs the risk of throwing Afghanistan into chaos after our departure, repeating many of the same mistakes we made in Iraq. Listen here for her diagnosis of the situation and her recommendations for an alternative approach.

    @Troy, I have a similar question to Albert Arthur’s.

    Where is the Strategika RSS feed with MP3 enclosure?

    I tried putting the hoover institution’s RSS feed into my Android Podcast App (Pocket Casts), but no strategika episodes came up.

    Through some digging I have found the following. This is probably beyond the level of effort most people are willing or capable of exerting.

    I concur.  At the very least, one must include an RSS link when posting podcasts.

    Or else I’ll … well, there isn’t very much I can do in retaliation … but I’ll do it!!!
