You can access our ongoing podcast series "SSI Live" with our own Dr. John R. Deni. The fall of Kunduz to the Taliban in late September cast serious doubt on the American effort at nation-building in Afghanistan. What are the strategic implications, and is there hope for turning around the situation? Or is Afghanistan simply a problem the United States cannot fix? Dr. Deni invited his SSI colleague Dr. Chris Mason to examine the broad strategic context of this event and to discuss the latter's recently published book, The Strategic Lessons Unlearned from Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan: Why the ANSF Will Not Hold, and the Implications for the U.S. Army in Afghanistan. Find this and all other podcasts here and be sure to subscribe.

The faculty of the U.S. Army War College (USAWC) includes a carefully selected mix of men and women with deep experience in military and national security strategy. To provide a venue for their analysis of the challenges and best practices of strategic leadership and to make available to the students and faculty of USAWC and other institutions in the professional military educational system, the Strategic Studies Institute has created the "practitioners' corner." Our newest addition, Military Preparedness was added on September 30.
