In The Media: Published on the anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, Ellen Judd, chair of our Afghanistan Committee writes:
“On this anniversary of the start of that war, we face a continuing war in Afghanistan resulting in more death and injury to civilians in armed conflict than anywhere on Earth, continued losses of Afghan and American troops and an unstable ground within Afghanistan that provides haven for Al Qaeda, ISIS and more than a dozen additional armed groups. There continues to be no military solution that offers peace and security within or beyond the boundaries of Afghanistan.”
