The Longest War. The Aspen Institute recently held a panel discussion about the war in Afghanistan. Now in its 16th year, the war in Afghanistan shows no sign of ending. If anything, the Taliban are resurgent. Meanwhile, al Qaeda and ISIS remain active in Afghanistan. The panel features Shah Nazar Khan, First Secretary, Embassy of Pakistan; James Cunningham, Former US Ambassador to Afghanistan; Hamdullah Mohib, current Ambassador of Afghanistan to the United States; and Robin Raphel, Former Assistant Secretary of State for South Asia. A one hour and 15 minute long video. Very informative. www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXNFjPYRy2M
