ASP Fellow Joshua Foust is interviewed.
“This weekend President Obama expressed condolences on the killing of 24 Pakistani soldiers after a NATO airstrike along the Afghanistan border. According to the White House, Obama called the November 26 attack a “regrettable incident” and pledged a full investigation in a Sunday night phone call to Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari. The attack prompted Pakistan to boycott an international conference on Afghanistan that began today in Bonn, Germany. The conference is focusing on international involvement in Afghanistan after 2014, the timeline for NATO’s withdrawal of troops. The Conference is also being seen as a referendum on ten years of American-led war in the country. For more we’re joined by Joshua Foust, a fellow at the American Security Project and the author of Afghanistan Journal.”
