As the dire situation in Afghanistan continues to unfold, the safe and prompt evacuation of Americans and Afghan allies remains a critical challenge and an urgent priority for the Biden Administration.

In this call leading senior former officials and experts discuss the urgent policies, posture and operations needed to ensure a rapid, safe evacuation in the days and weeks ahead. This call also addresses a wide range of other critically important issues, including the long-term implications for US alliances, particularly NATO, and what effective US policy options are available to the United States for setting its relationship with a Taliban-led Afghanistan. Also central to this discussion is the nature of any renewed terrorist threats from a reconstituted Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups who may seek safe haven in Afghanistan, and the most effective homeland defense and counterterrorism policies and posture in this new environment.
