PRI The World LogoASP Fellow Joshua Foust was interviewed by Marco Werman for PRI’s “The World” program.  In the interview, Foust discusses why the subject of Afghanistan has not featured prominently in US Presidential campaigns this year.

“What’s happening now is both parties have sort of realized that Afghanistan is such a difficult, complex problem that the best course of action is minimizing American involvement and American deaths.  And so there’s this kind of unspoken truce between both parties about what’s going to be happening both over the next 18 months…and then also over the next ten years.”
