Afghanistan: ‘We’ve got utter chaos right now’, says former US military advisor

Presenter

We spoke to retired US Army Colonel Christopher Kolenda, who fought in Afghanistan and negotiated with the Taliban in peace talks.

He’s been a key advisor to the American military and is now an author and academic.

We asked him when he realised the American understanding of what needed to be done in Afghanistan did not match the reality.
