Zaher Wahab: The US/Afghanistan Fateful Partnership

On June 29, 2020, Dr. Zaher Wahab gave a highly informative talk about the social, political, economic and military situation in Afghanistan, and in particular the US involvement there. An American who was originally from Afghanistan, Wahab spent much of the past two decades in his country of origin, including teaching at the American University there. He touched on what it was like having to be shuttled to and from the school by armed guards, unable to stop and get out. He talked about the history of both the US and Soviet invasions and occupations of Afghanistan, the international interest in its natural resources, ethnic tensions, and recipes for moving forward.

The event was coordinated by Peace and Justice Works (PJW) Iraq Affinity Group as a livestream on Youtube. It was hosted by local radio personality Ani Raven Haines. For this program, Flying Focus producer (and PJW member) Dan Handelman cut the original 90 minute event down to a more digestible two half-hour segments.

Streaming made possible by Peace and Justice Works Iraq Affinity Group.
