Security in Afghanistan: Progress and Challenges

Recorded on September 24, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Seven years after the fall of the Taliban, Afghanistan has seen an increase in security incidents that have killed soldiers and civilians.  While large parts of the country remain safe and democratization and development continue moving forward, the rise in violence requires new approaches involving Afghan institutions, regional partners and the international community.  Minister of Defense General Abdul Rahim Wardak will discuss the progress Afghanistan has made and the challenges that remain.
