PBS: Sarah Chayes on Afghanistan (video)

PBS NewsHour, 8/20/21; Ashley Wells, Seth Auberon (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly

Harvard alum, journalist Sarah Chayes, 2015

For a deeper perspective, Brangham speaks with author and Afghanistan expert Sarah Chayes, who covered the fall of the Taliban after 9/11 for NPR and served as advisor to several senior U.S. military commanders in Afghanistan.
