Afghanistan: A Senatorial View From Senator Kit Bond
As policymakers and observers around the world discuss President Obama's recently-released Afghanistan/Pakistan strategy, Senator Kit Bond of Missouri will offer his own views on how the U.S. should approach this troubled region. As Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and an expert in South and Central Asian issues, Senator Bond has spent a great deal of time focusing on the Afghanistan-Pakistan situation, has travelled extensively in the region, and studied closely the factors affecting security, development, and governance in the region. Bond returned from his latest visit to Afghanistan and Pakistan in December 2008.
This event is free, open to the public, and on the record. It is the first of the new USIP Congressional Newsmaker Series, designed to educate the public about issues related to war and peace with a special focus on international conflict prevention and resolution.
