Ambassador Zalmay Khalilzad on Iraq and Afghanistan

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

The number of American troops in Afghanistan will outnumber those in Iraq by late May or early June, according to new reporting from the Brookings Institution. That news comes as the U.S. and Iraq mark five years of democratically elected government in Iraq and as U.S. and NATO allies prepare for an upcoming offensive against the Taliban in Kandahar.

The Takeaway talks to Zalmay Khalilzad, former U.S. ambassador to both Iraq and Afghanistan during the Bush Administration. He is now the President of Khalilzad Associates.
