Must see TV – Afghanistan edition

University Channel just posted a couple of panel discussions from Columbia University about Afghanistan.  The panels took place in April and are titled “The Obama Administration Faces Afghanistan“.  I’m going through them now and they appear to be quite good and broken down into easily digested parts of about 15-30 minutes each.

Kimberly Marten’s intro to the FATA is worth watching in order to understand some of the complexities and myths about the area.

Other topics include:

  • India’s role in Afghanistan and Indo-Pakistani conflict as a driver for Afghan instability
  • The U.S. policy review process during the transition between administrations
