This is the November 17, 2021 hearing on "Afghanistan 2001 to 2021: U.S. Policies Lessons Learned," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. From the Opening Statement of Robert Menendez: "We are here today to examine the missteps and miscalculations over the past 20 years that led to the ultimate failure of the U.S. mission in Afghanistan. The tragic events of this past summer were the culmination of poor decision making by both Republican and Democratic administrations, going back to 2001. The failure to cement democratic gains in Afghanistan and to prevent the reemergence of a terrorist safe haven is a collective failure. It is a tragedy with many authors and origins. We are here today to find out exactly who and what those are." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Laurel E. Miller, and Ryan Crocker.
