A Conversation with Congressman Adam Kinzinger: The Way Forward for America’s Longest War

  • Wilson Center 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20004 United States (map)

Nearly 16 years after U.S. troops entered Afghanistan, the country faces a raft of major security challenges. The Taliban insurgency, which now controls more territory than at any time since 2001, has never been stronger. ISIS has developed a presence, while al-Qaeda remains resilient. Afghan security forces, while much improved, have struggled mightily to manage these threats despite continued U.S. assistance.

Congressman Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), a veteran of both the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, will offer his thoughts on the war in Afghanistan and how U.S. policy can best address it.
