The Fall of Afghanistan and Realities of Life Under the Taliban

After almost 20 years of conflict, the U.S.-led war in Afghanistan officially ended with a Taliban victory in August 2021. Join Lt. Generals Khosal Sadat and Sami Sadat (no relation) in conversation with Ronan O’Malley as they give firsthand accounts of the collapse of Afghanistan and share their personal experiences during the war and perspectives on the U.S. withdrawal from the country. The program also includes selections from 'Retrograde,' the 2022 'National Geographic' documentary which chronicles the months before the fall of Afghanistan. Free admission is available for Veterans, Afghan Special Immigrant Visa holders, students, and educators.
