Who can see your viewing activity?
who is the speaker tonight? I thought it was Amb Crocker.
that;s him speaking now
thank you. But I am signing off as this was billed as a talk by Amb Crocker on Afghanistan,. but he is barely speaking and now they shifted the talk to Pakistan.
I know I'm a bit confused myself, however I need the extra credit
best of luck with your extra credit.
Tom, is that why yousigned on?
What is your view of civil-military relations throughout OEF? Did this hinder the U.S. ability to assess the conflict clearly (especially in the last 5 years of our effort)?
to hear Amb Crocker speak on Afghanistan. He is extremely well versed.
Kim, I am old and I already have many college degrees. I do not need extra credit.
this appears to be all about the host. They should have listed her as the speaker.
Tom, once again you are correct]
Please show some respect and take this conversation private
As lessons learned go, what do you see as the best approach to avoiding corruption in a situation like Afghanistan, where rule of law is non-existent or insufficient?
Not sure whether the Q&A module works. Therefore putting the question here as well:
Sir, to your point of view, is there any main thing that we could or should have done differently in order to prevent the current situation in AFG. For example would it have helped to early to change to a somehow peace maintaining mission like it has been done in Kosovo for more than 30 years?
The extraction has been criticized, what steps could have been taken to make it go more smoothly and affectively?
The Biden administration has decided to engage the Taliban in direct negotiations in Doha. Given what you know about the Taliban, what are the prospects of success and under what circumstances do you think the Taliban can be trusted?
Well I think none of the nations engaged there was keen on maintaining a (large) footprint in AFG (maybe at all). However, the current situation cannot be anything that anyone wanted to have, am I wrong?
Given the U.S. withdrawal and evolving in conditions within the region, where should the U.S. invest diplomatic and military effort? and to what end(s)?
Your Excellency, thank you for your frankness. Another stellar presentation, as always. Again, thank you sir.
Great job Larry, Maria, and Ambassador Crocker - thank you! Margaret Little
Thank you very much Ambassador Crocker!
