A GPS Special: The Fall of Kabul, One Year Later
Fareed Zakaria GPS
Aug 14, 2022

As the one-year anniversary of the chaotic Taliban takeover of Kabul approaches, Fareed has an exclusive interview with the former president of Afghanistan, Ashraf Ghani, about why he fled the country, if he feels betrayed by the U.S., and whether the rumors are true that he escaped with many tens of millions of dollars. Then, former U.S. Marine turned journalist and author Elliot Ackerman discusses his time fighting in Afghanistan and what America did right and wrong there.  And the show begins with Fareed’s Take on the lessons the U.S. can take from the war.
