This is the November 20, 2020 hearing on "U.S. Military Mission in Afghanistan and Implications of the Peace Process on U.S. Involvement," held before the House of Representatives Committee on Armed Services. From the opening statement of Adam Smith:"[M]y hope today is that our witnesses can give us some guidance as we go forward how best to contain the threat that comes out of Afghanistan and South Asia, more broadly, while minimizing the risk, cost, and expense, and also crucially minimizing that disruptive effect that the presence of U.S. troops on foreign soil has, that the propaganda that it hands to our enemies to argue about what the U.S. is doing that requires this ideological extremism." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Stephen Biddle, Ryan Crocker, and Seth G. Jones.
