The Afghanistan Papers: A Secret History of the War

STATECRAFT SERIES

Drawing extensively from the Miller Center's presidential oral histories, Craig Whitlock's new book, "The Afghanistan Papers," tells the story of how three successive presidents and their military commanders deceived the public year after year about America’s longest war, foreshadowing the Taliban’s recapture of Afghanistan. The author discusses the book with Miller Center senior fellow Spencer Bakich, an expert in U.S. national security policy.
