American Abroad: The U.S., NATO and the War in Afghanistan
As the Obama administration finalizes its new policy in Afghanistan, the German parliament confronts a key vote on that country’s commitment to the war. With growing public concern in both countries, America Abroad Media hosts an international town meeting on the critical issues affecting Afghanistan, NATO and the transatlantic alliance with two key policymakers: U.S. Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan Ambassador Richard Holbrooke and German Defense Minister Karl-Theodor Zu Guttenberg. The meeting coincides with the International Conference on Afghanistan to be held in London. Frank Sesno, Director of The George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs, and Tina Hassel of Germany’s ARD Television moderates.
