Special Briefing: Former Ambassador Ryan Crocker on Afghanistan

September 09, 2021 | 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm | National Security ProgramMiddle East Program

About the Event

In the weeks since the fall of Kabul, questions have mounted about the future of Afghanistan under Taliban control, the circumstances surrounding the American-led evacuation effort, and the role of Pakistan, a troublesome American partner with long-standing interests in Afghanistan. To discuss these questions and challenges Washington may face, FPRI’s John Nagl will be joined by former Ambassador to Afghanistan Ryan Crocker. Ryan Crocker served as United States Ambassador to Afghanistan (2011–2012), Iraq (2007–2009), Pakistan (2004–2007), Syria (1998–2001), Kuwait (1994– 1997), and Lebanon (1990–1993).  He is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award America can present.
